This was actually my first ever build of a Takom kit, and those of you who have been following the build blog, will know that itís a really excellent kit, with only minor issues in the assembly part.
I chose to build a well used vehicle from the Syrian civil war, and I got lots of inspiration from pictures found on the internet.
Painting and weathering
I primed the entire model with Chaos Black from Citadel (Rattlecan) and all the base colors were from the Tamiya range. All the details, such as tools, tracks, AA machine gun, wire, etc., were finished in Humbrol colors.
The weathering was achieved using washes/filters of different oils, Humbrol colors and white spirit, which were gradually build up in thin layers. Mud and dust was made of pastels and various products from AK Interactions.
The only marking on this vehicle is the writing on the front fender, which was copied from the decal sample with a soft white pencil. I really hope our Arab speaking friends here on the forum wonít be laughing too much.
Iíve had a really good time with this project, and it certainly wonít be my last Takom kit in my stash. I highly recommend this kit for both modern AFV builders and modelers like myself, who just want to build something not Dunkelgelb as a base coat.
Hope you like the pictures, and please do comment or ask and Iíll do my very best in answering.
