Taking shape...

The First battalion of the 220th has been "decaled up" and is ready for weathering!  In the distance are a lend-lease halftrack and the Brigade Commanders' tank- I ran out of decals for this model, and I'm awaiting some more I ordered yesterday.

I also started on the Brigade Commander- a converted FAA Naval infantry officer.  He is wearing black tankers overall and a cap rather than a tankers helmet.  Black is a difficult colour to portray convincingly, but I'm happy with the way this guy is turning out.  I ended up using Ceramcoat's Dark Night Blue, highlighted with Norsk Blue, and then given a few black washes.
