Guess I could have finished it by the deadline! Just some detail painting left, and a little more weathering. Got a little carried away with the dust, thought it would mostly disappear with a flat coat, but it didn't! I use unsanded grout for my pigments, incidentally. Would like to add a crew eventually, hence the open hatches.
Cheers,
Jim

Looking good. Hope I finish mine and it looks half as good.

Why the different color on the skinny little bins by the exhaust?

Thanks Guys!
Robert, I used about a 50:50 mix of Gunze Sangyo H340(field green)+H319(light green). 'Post shaded' with Tamiya Smoke, and high-lights with original mix + a little Gunze 'Radome' tan.
Paul, I loosley based it on a photo of a vehicle that had the same OD/Khaki bins, mostly because I liked the colour variation. It was a 'show' vehicle, but I suspect these areas were repainted to put on a new call sign number, and they just used whatever paint was handy.
