Good start. Camo looks spot on

Bit more done... ambulance has seen better days but I wanted a real worn out look as it's to be one on the long retreat...



Esci M3 with resin upgrade, in Protective K based on one seen in Belgrade that looked to have been repainted in Soviet paint over the usual Lendlease Olive Drab.



Not entirely happy at the moment with it, but more to do. Needs to look worn out and knackered after a long retreat and use.

Maybe fade out the roof and hood more because of the sun and rain?

Needs more damage (wing mirror missing, cracked window, dents etc.)
and baggage. Units that are retreating carry absolutely everything with them. e.g. bags & boxes on every conceivable place, such as on the wings
& roof.  If the roof items cover the red cross logo, then a white sheet tied
over the top with a (hastily) painted red cross on it. Maybe a (slightly) wounded figure draped over one wheel arch.

Well as Salute got cancelled, and some little pandemic thingy has been making work a bit busy... it's been a while till I got my head alive to paint... and figure out I didnt need to paint stuff for a demo game!

Work will be manic for a while thanks to that bastard virus, but I intend to get something done!

So...

Beautiful stuff. I always had a soft spot for the AirFix T34, which, like yours,
came with two turrets (76mm & 85mm). Two tank possibilities for two shillings
& six pence (twelve & a half pence now). Bargain for one on school-boy pocket money.
Your numbers look very nice & neat. transfers? If yes what type & from whom may I ask?
