Steve, we have moved on from that now , cheers ole chap
Well here we go with the colouring in part . Now most people use Tamiya Field Grey for the typical Brit green camo colour, but to me it appears that Tamiya have tinkered with the recipe again. I have a new jar of XF-65 but it looks different, darker in fact than my last batch. So I am glad that I grabbed a couple of Humbrol acrylics the other week, which I now tried out . I ended up using Humbrol 102 thinned with VMS acrylic thinner. For the black disruptive camo I used a mix of Vallejo Black 71.057 and Anthracite Grey 71.052.
Next up will the vision gear, hatch cushions, stowage bin cover and drill out the tracks
Great colors Paul!...your making short work of this kit.

Looks excellent, Paul, and thanks for the information about the colors. Very helpful!

Very nice indeed Paul. Yes tamiya seem to have been playing with their colours of late, first it was O/D now field grey. however I still find it a good match especially when I add a drop or two of tamiya flat flesh. Of course the colour varied immensely due to many factors & the humbrol one you've used looks perfect for a Scorpion.
