Cordon Bleu

On to the GMC and things have progressed well. I started by spraying tamiya XF60 dark yellow on all the wooden parts of the vehicle then added two coats of AK interactive heavy chipping fluid. Once dry I used tamiya XF62 olive drab as the main colour and as per my usual method lighted this with tamiya flat flesh. After drying over night I then brushed on water on the wooden areas and with a short stiff brush worked over these areas. The result is very effective and I am very pleased with the AK stuff it seems much less hassle than the usual hairspray method. I have also started to pick out the stowage and other bits on the model.
