After this they were washed with the the same oil paint mixture as used on the tank and parts dusted with the same pigments.

I must admit that I found it a bit difficult to get some of them to grasp their weapons naturally once they were all painted up. I guess that the extra layers of paint exceeded the tolerances of the fit. Next time, even though it is harder to paint them, I might assemble them with weapons already in hand.
