Hi everyone, this is my attempt at the Bronco SU152. It is built OOB. This will accompany my recent Ferdinand onto small diorama / vignette. I have yet got to source a crew for it and to finalise the exhaust weathering, more fuel stains, drivers vision block needs a shiny black look, the oil drum ties and final weathering on the lower tracks when placed onto the groundwork, but other than that it is done.

The instructions show one version without unit markings and I thought that would do for me. There is a variation in the paint tone and it has some subtle weathering but I am not sure if that it enough and wondered if anyone else would / could suggest anything further for me to do to enhance the look a bit more, I was considering giving the top of the turret some earth coloured paint over a hairspray layer and then scrubbing away to produce a worn muddy / dusty look as I have tried to do on the front fenders ??? Any comments welcome.
