After a treatment of Mr Surfacer 1000 (which i think is a must for me), i sprayed a few layer of green paint on the tank. This is due (from my reading) initially before going to Ops. Telic most of these tank usually will be painted with the usual Nato green camo and they got repainted to the desert color prior to the conflict. so this is what i'm trying to accomplish (read the word :TRY :lol:).
Here are the greens i'll be using...
below is the result after a few coat of H302 - Green
Preshading with H330 - Dark Green
and lastly the overall lighter coverage of H303 - Green something
i let it sit for a couple of hours, before i sprayed the tank with a hairspray preparing the tank for a chipped technique later on (after i sprayed on the Desert color).
Noted that i installed all the road-wheel and track on the tank prior to my painting. I rarely do this but for this tank, note that the side skirt almost cover the whole track.. so i figure it would save me sometime from painting each and individual road-wheels and the track... cheating.. yes.. but the end result i *hope* would be satisfactory...
Next post i'll show the desert color...
