Chieftain Lights & Glazing

With the ASLAV done I can now focus on the chieftain and have now sorted out all the glazing and lights. For the rear lights I used a couple of pre coloured lenses as the kit ones are a devil to get off the sprue due to very thick runners. I also used two clear lenses for the side lights at the front. The rest are from the kit with the IR lenses painted black on the inner faces.

All the masking was carefully removed from the periscopes and the wipers picked out with green and black followed by a touch of Klear here and there to restore the glazing to the correct sheen. The next step will be some severe mud applications to the lower hull & wheels, building up a nice muddy finish.
