What a beautiful model! There are several schools of thought on the colors, and yours is a valid reflection of one of them. Like you say--no one can prove you wrong! :Hug:

Thanks for the kind words. The kit builds up very nicely, as all the models in this thread demonstrate. On the colour front, I would have been happier with a darker brown and bluer blue - more like Dancho's scheme in fact! I have now bought myself a nice tin of bright light blue for next time, 'cos Humbrol 65 just doesn't cut it.

Regards,
Adrian

I also noticed that you have the exhausts installed correctly. Mine are on upside down!

Here is my attempt. I do like the camouflage schemes, but I am saving that for something else. So I went for a bit of paint chipping/ run out of primer at the factory type of thing and a nice slogan to offset the plain green.

I will have to look into the exhaust question!

Nicely done - like the winter scene/setting as well.

Thanks guys!
The base is piece of chip board with some twigs and dirt from the garden, sprayed with white primer car paint. I will try a few more of these.
