I've now completed the oil dot fading & streaking and this morning have sprayed the model with Matt varnish. I'm very pleased with how the fading & streaking has turned out, it adds more depth to the single colour finish. I've also sorted out a pallet and load to sit beside the model on the base. Once the varnish has had a couple of days to fully cure I will then start adding all the light lenses and paint the hydraulic rams chrome. Then it will be onto pigments to finish the weathering.
