I can't tell from your photo, but the actual Reforger marking was a circle and the 100 mph tape used to secure the edges gave it the look of a hexagon. Those big vinyl stickers didn't stick too well.

Looks really good so far.

Thanks Rob.  The decal is a hex, w/green tape on the edges.  It looks pretty convincing.  One was a pain to apply, just like the 1/1 markings.  I had to use one from another left-over decal set as the first one ripped and broke into a bunch of pieces, similar to the actual markings.

It is finally complete.  I added some bags and gear from the spares bin and drybrushed it using a few different muddy brown colors.  

Let me know what you think.  I am very pleased with the way it came out.

She turned out great! As usual I love the storage and the 'lived-in' look!

Thanks est.1961.  Glad you found the tips useful.

 

What is everyones opinion on adding a RAWL (Rotating Amber Warning Light) to the left rear?  It looks like about 50-50 on having them or not in pics.  I'm not sure when the lights started showing up or were required.  Opinions?
