Nice!  :-* The paint job gives it just the right amount of a well-worn veteran look.

Thank you. Yes, the quality of the model and figures is excellent. This really helped. It is the first larger model that I have used my airbrush for. At this scale, the weathering process has to be more selective than on 28mm vehicles for example.
