Hurrah! I hear you cry at last an update! I have finally managed to get back to the modelling bench after some trials and tribulations plus a slight loss of the old modelling mojo but as Austin Powers would say,"I'm back baby, yeah!!"
After a nice primer coat I have used tamiya NATO black, flat black and field grey for the main colours and them started adding all the details using vallejo colours. The seats are painted using tamiya dark grey.
It's all horribly clean and tidy at the moment but never fear this will soon change!
