These can be tricksy to paint, and to photograph too, my bad for not waiting and trying to take pics before the mattcoat was applied.
I’ve given it a decent but hopefully natural looking weathering. I’m going to try and roll this style of weathering out to all the vehicles for this force.
I put a decent amount of wear and dirt on the upper surfaces of the leaves as it’s these that contact the ground when deploying, and I figure there no way these get repainted before each drop. To that end I’ve dirtied the inside down a bit too.
Now sadly I lost one of the decals during the weathering stage, I’ve left it off, cos we’ve all seen worn markings, but I fear its too obviously a missing decal. I shall likely have to go back and fix that.
Well we’re getting through half term, making models and posting results. looks like I’m going to be on track so, strap in :)
