Not much progress on the tank lately, but I made a start on the crew. I glued the arms into place, added some filler and sanded the edges when it was dry. After a coat of Halfords plastic primer, I undercoated them with Tamiya Khaki with a touch of RAF green. The flesh was painted with Vallejo ModelColor Dark Flesh.
Image

Time now to break out the quality paint brushes and start the main painting with Humbrol enamels.

As for the Greyhound, I started on its crew as well. Although its hard to tell, they have been undercoated in Tamiya Buff.

This is the set I'm using for the Greyhound:

Some tank crew, excellent, I look forward to seeing these develop.

Thanks Shaun.
Finally started painting the Centurion.
I pre-shaded everything with thinned Tamiya flat black. Then sprayed the main colour, using Vallejo IDF Sinai Grey '82 and added highlights by mixing some white into the main colour.
Image

The tyres were glued in place and the wheels added as well.
Image

Gotta say, I do like the Vallejo Sinai grey 82.
Image
IDF armour colour is another minefield like olive drab or dunkelgelb.
I've seen a boat load of paint mixes on various forums, but this seems as good as any.

I had also primed the side skirts, but when it came to spraying them I realised I'd primed the inner face of the left hand side skirts and not the outer face!!! :oops:

Very sweet looking. I like the blending of colors.

Nice job! The pre-shading has paid off well

Oh man that is a really great paint job, Paddy. The blooper re the side skirts sounds like something I'd do!

Thanks guys.

Tracks and side skirts finally added - Now it looks like a centuron. I also added the jerry cans, fire extinguishers, turret hatches and stretcher.
All detail painting and modulation was finished. The modulation looks a bit extreme right now but the filter coat will tone it down.
Image

Pioneer tools and tow cables painted and still to be weathered. Pretty tricky to paint these in situ!
Image

The contents of the turret basket were painted and highlighted. They still need a wash to add the deep shadows and really make them stand out.
Image

The last of the stowage has been base coated.
Image

Next is a gloss coat and decals.

I like the way that Centurion looks!

Cheers,
