Looking good Nick. I have done a few sets of metal tracks, but have never used the burnishing liquid. I tend to just prime and paint black.

Wow! That is looking good!

The AM tracks really help the overall look. I'm definitely going to find some for my build.

Hey Nick how did you paint/weather the wood on the tool handles? Those might be the best wooden handles I've ever seen and yes I have my glasses on. Please. Thank you.

thank you Griffin. man those tools are small ! I used tamiya deck tan as the base then raw umber oil paint to streak the grain then a light coat of transuant orange tamiya followed by light mm flat black enamel wash. I think that covers itBang Head

Now THAT is an extremely well done kit.  AM tracks are fantastic, and the weathering looks just right.  The figure pulls it all together.  Congerats on an excellent job!
