Thanks.
Bit of work still to do, a head swap on the RPG chap is needed due to the excellent vietnamese features sculpted by Mr Hicks, although I may just try giving him a fair amount of cam-cream, as getting to the head now I've stuck on that Bergan could be a prob. Once I finish off the camo I'll post pics in my 28mm Bush Wars thread.

Those SAS are great - I'll be borrowing that idea for my Twilight 2030 marauders I think!

That is very nice.
how did you deal with the sticky-out grills on the body and the rear boxes on the track guards?

I can see that you have done something, I just cannot see what it is.

Cheers all for the feedback, I rather liked painting this think the Ontos may be next on my shopping list...

@ Ultravanillasmurf: Pretty much the whole thing was just sprayed green (Tamiya TS-61 Nato Green) as a base coat. The boxes on the track guards got the same treatment.
The little bits sticking up from the track guards needed a bit of trimming to give a cleaner edge where they join the track guards, and I stuck on a little resin ammo/tool box on the rear right hand side (just because it fitted rather well and looked the part).
Stowage; the wheel bit and extra track links come with the model; I cut the wheel down to a single and cleaned out the centre so it looks like a spare, thought about removing the bolts and drilling the holes but sanity prevailled...
There are are a couple of resin tarps from my bits box and I picked up the Tamiya 1/48 jerry cans set, which work pretty well scale wise.

The rear grill recieved a hefty dose of MIG black pigment mixed with some Vallejo black, the  front , back and inside of tracks had a fairly liberal amount of MIG european earth and african earth pigments to represent a build up of crud, kept the tracks fairly clean as this one is suppossed to be in an urban environment.

Also made a cover for the searchlight from kitchen foil and some Tamiya masking tape. Only other addition is to the crew figure, the figure is waist up, so he's sitting on a blob of GS, painted the same as the fatigues.
