IDF Centurion Stowage & Figures

Over the weekend I've been working on the stowage and figures for the model. The stowage was made using duro green putty rolled thinly and then sculpted into various tarps and packs. The two helmeted figures received boom mikes, cabling and com's boxes made up from wire, lead wire, plastic card and green putty.

An interesting point I've discovered during my research is that initially the Israelis used old WW2 style American helmets which they adapted with new com's and mikes. They then manufactured their own version of this type of helmet. There is a slight difference between the two but nothing that is noticeable in this scale.  

So the model is now ready for a wash and primer which I hope to get done this week.
