Found this kit at a garage sale over the summer and thought I'd give it a shot. Started with a base of Tamiya Red Primer, then a quick pass with German Grey. On top of the hairspray, I used AK paint, and then started chipping. Considering this is my first time chipping anything, I think it turned out pretty well. Let me know your thoughts for a first time armor builder.

Next up are decals, detail painting, pin wash, and weathering.

I really am enjoying this. I don't want to put it down honestly.

I think it is turning out fantastic, the chipped finish looks great. Are you going to paint the tow cables a steel color or leave them like they are?
If you are happy with it and your having fun working on the build then nothing else matters!
Post some more photos as the build progresses,

I considered painting them steel before the hairspray, but went against it. Now I'm wishing I didn't. Oh well, live and learn.
