Just a quick update before I start work. Sigh...
I ended up fattening some of the stripes, adding some decals that John sent over (thanks mate!), fretting and breaking some of these said decals, painting over the decals to
- try and change the front 1 to a seven
- and to attempt to give them a rushed on painted look that many seemed to have in the field
Not too bad. It's a bit darker than I'd like it, but, well, Badab Black wash does that. Quite happy with the highlighting.
Now to add some mud and scratches, and on with the next one...
Thanks for all you're help fellas, I've really appreciated the advice.
