I like the stenciled UN decal. Great build so far; it inspired me to get a copy of this kit.

Agreed. The more obviously stencilled UN markings are actually an improvement, IMHO.  :)

Thanks Gents, I appreciate the comments. Just been told on Armorama though that they are wrong and shouldn't have the gaps. But after all the trouble that are staying as they are.


On to the last few bits of equipment

 

Looking at reference photos I have lots of choice in how to finish her. White wing mirrors, black wing mirrors or black & white. White frame on drivers glass shield, or black. Black or white covers on the smoke grenade launchers. And pristine finish, weathered finish or totally beat up finish.... 😃

 

 

 

I'll go for something like the middle one but if I overdo it, as I tend to, I won't mind.

Concur on the UN markings. I think you've vastly improved the look, accuracy be damned.

Speaking of damned, that's some damned fine work too! Thanks for the update!

Thanks Brian

Trying to fit the tyres in has broken off 3 of the wheel hubs, including the main supports.



They are repairable and thankfully I've not fitted the delicate wing mirrors or drivers shield yet

Anyway, put the tyres on and then managed to get the wheels refitted. Mirrors and drivers shield to go and then just a tad more light weathering

Nearly there. One more session at the bench will see it finished

Nice! Great work! That white scheme really makes it stand out.  :icon_alabanza:
