Great texturing on the turret! What did you use there?

 

Ditto! The turret looks great!

Thanks gents. Some more progress today, lots of little bits added. The turret id almost done, needs the mantlet cover retainers and the commander's MG, then a couple of bits here and there elsewhere.

I had no joy with the PE light guards, so thinned the kit parts, a LOT.

Thanks guys. Still looking for pics, but strongly leaning towards something ROK-ish.

The multi-colour ROK camo scheme looks pretty friggin' cool. Not sure if it's the same as MERDC or just simular.

Similar, I think. And I'll be thinking about how to add a bunch of hay or grass or whatever the ROK hangs all over them when they're on exercise.

Not sure if it's of any interest to you but Academy did make a very nice set of ROK tank crewmen. Not if the uniforms/helmets would be correct for the time period but they're nicely molded and the ones I used had no fit issues. Not sure if they're still in production but they can still be found around the web including Ebay.

I remember that set, I'll start looking. Thanks.

So here's how far in I am:

I ended up using the kit jerry cans, couldn't touch the brass racks without breaking something, so I went with plastic. Almost ready for paint, I think.

You're painting the stowage already in place? Is this your normal M.O. on builds?

Everything looks real good so far!

Ditto there! 

I always paint the storage by itself and add it last. But if it works better for you that way great!

I've pretty much always painted "soft" stowage in place, saves the trouble of having to strap it down after the model itself is painted. Boxes, loose items like roadwheels, ration boxes, that kind of stuff I'll attach after weathering, unless it's under a tarp or something.

So, with that said, green:

I can still go Jordanian sand over green, or ROK multi color, haven't decided yet.

It really is looking good, Russ. I can't wait to see how this is going to end.  :)
