To finish the model up I applied a generous amount of mud in two different tones on the tracks and the lower part of the chassis. I prefer my vehicles muddy so there are quite large chunks in various different places. I also used mud to cover up the areas where paint had started to peel off a bit due to the basecoat sticking to the surface badly.
All in all a very enjoyable little project. As I've come to wargaming through scale models I really enjoy the building aspect of the hobby a lot and am really fond of plastic kits. A little conversion work is also fun and this did provide a lot of enjoyment. Yet again if my mysterious benefactor is reading this, a big THANK YOU to you!
Wow! That is a spectacular little model Samuli - well done! The three-tone camo came off brilliantly and I would not have been able to spot the supposed 'gaffs' if you had not pointed them out. The fabricated gun-shield turned out amazingly well (the rivets really do add to the overall impression). What a wonderful gift and reciprocated by an excellent build by you.
