Work on the figure went very well with only some details removed and the areas re worked. I painted the figure in an ERDL scheme as used by some marine units before the BDU woodland camo scheme and uniform was standard issue. Vallejo colours where used and custom shades mixed to match my references. The flesh areas still need to be completed. The base has also been started and this is a simple affair. I plan to add some long grasses or tussocks to suggest a beach landing area later on.

Well the Mutt is now finished after a round of pigments on the upper surfaces. All the extras are also in place too.Very pleased with the finished model, the small additions made really make a big difference.

I have now given the model a matt varnish and painted/added most of the shiny bits. I punched out some discs for the optics of the TOW launcher from some old 35mm negatives. After a light spray with tamiya buff & earth it's onto the pigments. I have started to build up layers using pigment fixer. A couple more layers should do it then I can work on the upper surfaces and interior.
