Accurate Armour kit with AFV Club wheels that my friend Mick Lowe moulded for me, I readjusted the suspension and the swing arm on the idler, the sprocket and idler (which isn't set yet) are also from the AFV Club kit.
I have added the ledge for the swimming apron out of plastic card, replaced the vision blocks at the hatch beside the exhaust and all the surface bolts.
The Chieftain bin is from AA and the Jerry can is Academy and the holder is scratch built.
The tracks are from Friul.

Painting started.
Under coated with Halfords grey primer and brush painted green with Humbrol 116.

Black lines are next.
Lots more to do so keep tuned
As always, helpful comments are always welcome.

I have painted the Spartan with Humbrol enamels, Green 116, Black 33.
The mud is Humbrol 26 earth and Black 33 mixed up into a thick muck and this is applied to the running gear and the rear of the vehicle with a dusting up the side to show spray from the tracks...
This is a constantly changing hue as it is in a different state on different parts of the vehicle, wet at its lowest point and getting progressively dry as it climbs the vehicle.
On top there are small patches of Buff 72 showing dry areas.
The stowage is made up of traffic cones, camo nets, cardboard boxes, and other bits of military kit.
There also will be a set of NATO jump leads, a tow rope and shackles.

More to come
