Pin wash of entire vehicle with AK Interactive “OIF and OEF wash” (AK121), followed by clean up with white spirit to remove the excess and tide marks. At this point I added a couple of pieces of stowage items, so as to blend them into the subsequent weathering stages, as appropriate.
Chipping was simulated using Vallejo Model Color “German Camouflage Black Brown” 70822 applied by sponge.
The exhaust (textured with Mr.Surfacer 1000) was painted with Lifecolor paints (UA704, UA703, UA702, UA701). I might add subsequent wash/pigments to refine it.

- The exhaust was painted with Lifecolor paints (UA704, UA703, UA702, UA701).
- Tracks and running gear were lightly dry brushed with Citadel “Necron Compound” dry paint.
- Pin wash of entire vehicle with AK Interactive “Dark Brown wash for green vehicles” (AK045).
- Chipping with Vallejo Model Color “”German Cam. Black Brown” 70822.
- Vertical streaks of AK Interactive “Dark Streaking Grime” (AK024) applied to the turret and hull sides, followed later by blending with white spirit.
- A mix of “medium” colour pigments was added by brush to the tracks, running gears and select parts of the hull and turret. Fixing was achieved by a light spray of Tamiya X-20A thinner. Later, a slurry of the same ingredients was made up and flicked from the end of a brush to create splash effects.
