Header overview

Fitting is just nice and dont really required a lot of work to fix just a few putty spots here and there.white head smile

Painting the camo posed a few challenges for me mainly regarding my airbrush control as i'm doing the camo freehand.

The initial finish is just too glossy so i decided to tone it down with a few layer of very diluted Sandy Yellow and top it with a coat of Flat finishing.

The marking is from the Operation Desert Storm back in 1991 with a nice nose art to boot.
