Rex's "reasonable hobby goal" challenge complete[ish]

 With 3 minutes to spare (based on Australian time) I have [mostly] finished my "reasonable hobby goal".

This is the first vehicle weathering that I have ever done and Dan has rightly identified that I was procrastinating. In the last podcast Dan challenged me to have it finished by 17 March the results are below. First time with oil panel tinting, weathering, streaking, and pigments.

Details to follow but for now I hope you like it as much as I do.

Before and after:

Bolt Action, Italy Pt2; Battle for Mottola
Bolt Action: Campaign: Mariana & Palau Islands
