By the way, I like the portable bog. A real touch of detail genius.

thanks, i already ordered the ADF color from Hataka and will use them on my Bushmaster PMV.

As for the abrams the green looks much greener/ darker on the photo's that it actually is, i will corrrect the color as much as I can with the oil/ blending proces.

Aaand we are closing in on finishing this one
added dirt, mud, dust, rainmarks, fuel spills and so on.

I tried to do it as realistically as possible seen on ref. photos







Some small minor things still has to be done finishing up the weathering, put some more stowage in the back, some broken branches on the main hull and add figures and put it on a base.

Any feedback is welcome

AUSCAM tan is FS30219, plain and simple. This is a standard colour in modelling paints, particularly in the aircraft modelling scene. It's the same tan used in all USAF SEA camo schemes e.g. F-4 etc. I scratch my head wondering why people bother with anything else. Granted, the Aussie OD can be a bit harder to get right. Regardless, brilliant build so far. I really hope they're not DS tracks you're using. If they are, bin them and get some aftermarket ones. DS plastic reversion down the track is your enemy and has been widely discussed here and other sites.

thanks for the comments, they indeed are the DS tracks, but for now i will keep them as they don't bother me that much.

as for the progress, i worked on some figures, still not completely done.

i know they are not totally suitable for Aussies, but close enough.
the tank overalls are supposed to be DPCU and 1 of the body armors i painted to look like the new Aussie Multicam, as you see a lot of variation in pictures.




looks like Miniart took reference from this


and I started working on a little base for the tank
