Short update this week with the Warrior painted and decals added. I used tamiya acrylics and the green is NATO Green with a touch of field grey added. The black was done freehand. After a coat of Alclad aqua gloss, i applied the decals. The registration number is from an AM set for the Chally 1. This had individual letters and numbers so i could creat the one i wanted. They are a bit large so the one son the back and closer together than they should be. The convoy marking on the backdoor is also from the spares.

I made the callsigns and bridge plate myself. The callsigns are a bit rough as i had to paint over the black as my printer doesn't seem to like printing black on white decal paper. But seeing as the guy who painted the callsigns on the real vehicle is a ham fisted clumsey idiot, its appropriate that they are not perfect.

I have since made a start on the weathering with some dot filters.

More soon.

This looks great!
To make each build less crappy than the last one. Or, put another way, "Better than the last one, not as good as the next one!"..

Well it looks like I've been missing out on this one Martin. The reference to the "Ham fisted clumsy idiot"...….. :giggles:

Thanks Floki.

Final update before i wrap this up. I did an oil pin wash followed by some AK streaking grime which gave it a nice grubby look.

Image

Image

After this i started getting other parts fitted. Here, the wheels are on, the thermal sheeting was main with tissue and the bungees were done with black wire with a thinner wire added for the hooks.

Afraid i messed around with my camera setting, the pics adove give a much more accurate sense of the colours.

Image

Image

The turret has the site covers added as well as the side bins.

Image

Then, with the barrel painted that was added and stowage added to the rear basket. I have added the slaves leads, a daysack, oil drum and some ammo tins. Roll mates were added to the back of it.

Image

Image

Here i have added the spare track links, crew tent and more thermal sheeting on the engine deck along with a drip tray made from some styrene sheet. Also have the fabric tow rope on the front.

Image

Image

Items on the back include D10 reel, fire extinguishers and 8m radio mast. The AA conversion included 2 masts but my vehicle only carries 1. As i was fitting this i realised i also need to add the mounts and bracket for the other. So i cut the mount off the base of the other mast and made the brackets from some lead foil. The windows have been filled with white glue and these will clear up once dry.

Image

Next up some dust effects, a flat coat and pigments. Should be finished by the end of the weekend.
