British M4 number 3 - Basic paint job

So, the third British Army M4 tank has a its basic paint completed and decals for Company C, Grenadier Guards, Guards Armoured Division.

The tank was spray painted with the last of my PSC Britsh Tank Green (nearly Vallejo Russian Uniform Green). Highlighted with Russian Uniform Green lightened with Army Painter Skeleton Bone.

Tarpaulins are Vallejo German Field Grey shaded with Field Grey mixed with Old Wood. Old wood has been used on the two crates. Straps are Khaki.

Some basic weathering has been applied to the hull. The chassis just has very basic colouring - Russian Uniform Green on the bogies, idlers and sprocket plus the hull. Black Grey has been used for the bogie tyres. Tracks are painted with a mixture of Vallejo Black, Hull Red and Black Grey.
 Oil stains are Citadel Nuln Oil.

 The tarpaulins on the box on the turret and the cover over the engine deck were washed with Citadel Athos Camoshade and Agrax Earthshade. They need a bit of matt varnish.
The crates were washed with Agrax Earthshade.
