Flat coat and weathering ...................................................................................

Did the Flat Coat, used Vallejo's Matt Clear then retouched up the pigments, still have to fix the tires a little and add some slightly different color dust for a better effect.  

on this build I went with a base coat of Model Master olive drab
Then a top down spraying of lightened olive drab.... 
then I sprayed the underside allowing some over spray along the sides and back of Ak interactive Dust Effects (Ak 015)
then I heavily weathered it logically using AK's European Earth Pigments AK-042.. 
then a flat coat which toned down a bit of the pigments and then touched up with some more pigments where needed.. so far so good.. 

I am a real fan of Dusty.. lol I think different tones give an olive drab model some wow factor.

Ok now here is the last build photo before I get to the finals.

Some Body work.........................................................

I finally have some more done on the Bantam did some body work and inside work. I have to say the really small parts in this mini-art kit are very fragile. Esp the gearshift. It broke while I was trying to place it with the tweezers. Took an hour to get glued together right... so be warned if anyone gets one of these.. LOL

Getting the Chassis built.................................

There was some pin damage on the main chassis part, but it will be mostly unseen when the build is complete, and there is a lot of flash on this kit.. I still have some to trim and sand here and there.. every part seems to have a small bit and the main chassis part had a lot.. 

anyways here is some pics of the chassis.. lots of small parts and some were difficult to line up esp building the springs and shocks assembly, but so far so good.

This is the start of my Bantam Reconnaissance car 1940 known as the BRC40.   This is a Miniart kit in 1/35  kit #35014 U.S. 4x4 Truck Bantam BRC40 w/Crew.  This kit has a lot of flash and will be a pain to clean up the parts.
