The male tank has also had some attention and the main painting finished off. For this I first sprayed a couple of coats of AK worn effects over the model then once dry a coat of tamiya flat earth followed by a couple of progressively lighter shades using buff and desert yellow mixed with the earth colour. I've kept it very light as I don't want the finish to darken too much especially in this scale.
Once the paint has dried over night I can start adding some scratches using a cocktail stick and very fine brush. I don't want to go too heavy on this but rather add just enough wear around the obvious areas of the model.
