Allied Power Gaso-Line RAM Badger WIP

Hello Everyone, here are some pictures of my RAM. My camera is not the best and I'll have to wait for my brother with his SLR for the final pics.

I airbrushed Tamiya Hull Red as a base then Khaki Drab. I did some shading with the airbrush using Olive Drab. For filters I used greys, tans and browns except on the plate covering the turret ring. I wanted it to look brighter and newer than the rest of the RAM so I used mainly greens. I have streaked the hull with oils before and between the filters. I've kept the chipping to a minimum on the hull. The obvious exception to this is the prominent rust where the infantry would have mounted the side in the RAM's previous role. I have hand painted unit markings based on drawings of a Badger serving with 5th Canadian Armoured Division.

I'm a newbie so I cannot be sure if what I have done is in balance. All advice is welcome. I have some areas to finish before weathering with pigments which will be kept to the minimum on the upper hull. The tracks and bogies I will have quite muddy as this vehicule would have served in the winter of 44-45.

Keep your own pics coming!
