Upfront, this is a WIP, it still needs a tube name, dull coat and light weathering, but a PCS move has gotten in the way. I hope you guys like it, I would love some feedback on how I can improve it!

FYSA, I used Friul Metal Tracks painted as thou they had just been replaced. The stowage is all from a Tamiya stowage kit and the tarp "burrito" on the back was hand made. I modeled the gun after the guns of Bonecrusher Battery 1-5 FA, my battery. I deliberately choose to use my bumper number to make it more personal.



Still no ammo on the gun, that ammo can/round belt has yet to be painted.

Still need to clean and paint the trash bag.

I have had difficulty getting the decals to not look like stickers on this one, I used multiple coats of Tamiya Mark Fit Strong, but it doesn't seem to be melting the way I normally expect them to. Hopefully a dull coat fixes this issue.

Looks really good so far. I guess you built the AFV Club model. The details are crisper than those of my Italeri kit.
