Israeli M48 Magach WIP

After spending a little time today mulling over Israeli tank colours, I ended up deciding to go with option two (Buff and Medium Grey). I am not 100% convinced I have the colour right, but I think it will look the part, quite grey, yet still quite warm. I've done a little more work tonight since these photos, hit the test vehicle with a heavy drybrush to even out the magic wash, finished the tracks and road wheels etc. I still need to do a little work trying to track down some decals. Dave over at I-94 has some, but I am not 100% convinced that he has what I need - of course an email or two will sort that out.I also need to do a little research on the markings and specifically if there are any air recognition symbols I should be painting on.

I've still go to hit it with 2 or 3 layers of sand coloured drybrushes but I'll wait till I have the decals I think. When deployed out in the field tanks very very dirty, very quickly, especially out in the Golan Heights or Sinai desert. But I am pretty happy with where it is so far. Just need to knock out the other 7 (and some M113s).

With a bit of luck I'll have some more photos tomorrow, along with some WIP photos of my French infantry.

Already looking sexy dude. Love the color, and looking forward to the markings, weathing, and other goodness...
