Another project for Phil, this time a Peter Pig 15mm Centurion Sho't. The model was undercoated in light grey, then sprayed Vallejo Modelcolour IDF Green. It was washed with Army Painter dark tone, then dry brushed with IDF Green mixed with progressively more pastel green, in an attempt to recreate Sinai Grey. Canvas was painted IDF sand grey and dry brushed with the base colour and a little white, then washed with Army Painter strong tone. Tracks and tow hawser are oily steel, washed with dark tone and dry brushed orange brown. Weapons are NATO black dry brushed basalt grey, with IDF sand grey ammo boxes. The crew figure (actually a WW2 British tank commander) has a yellow green uniform, IDF sand grey beret and black headphones. Hatch interior is painted ivory. Finished off with two coats of matt varnish! Whip aerials are nylon fishing line glued into drilled sockets and painted NATO black.
Fun to paint and good practice as I plan to add a troop of Sho'ts to my IDF models when I get round to it.
Thanks for looking.
