Todd; I'm not being lazy yet I think Maki summed it up for me - nice job showing how these work. And thanks for letting us 1/100 modelers know there are AFVs out there for us now!

Thank you very much Frederick! I was thinking 1/100 was a tough scale, for me anyway, to paint and figured if I could pull it off it would certainly help show the range of the set for sure.

I know this is "after the fact" a bit here, but I went ahead and weathered this last night. Multiple layers of Vallejo's washes work really well over a Mat Varnish clear coat.








I have a few of these little ones in the stash now...so this won't be the last kne I have a go at for sure1!
