21st Century Toys Firefly 1/32 customization

This hard to find unit is expensive and looks a bit cheap, too plastic, no weathering. Not good for an expensive model, I need better shots of this unit for my movies, now more than before because I will use the far better camera of iphone 5s instead of iphone 4's camera.

This is the before:

This is the AFTER:

A black wash was applied to all the depressed areas or clefts, also the the end of the muzzle was blackened. Then a dry tan brush was applied all over, including the wheels.

Several accessories from other kits were added to this tank, like this wood plates, from the Revell/Monogram Sherman 1/32, the antenna also comes from that kit, because this Firefly did not include it.

The tracks were also weathered with some silver brush and a little rust. Tamiya logs and a very nice 1/35 chain from ebay were added on the frontside.

The machine gun was also weathered with some dry silver brush touches.

Some stowage from Italeri was added on the back, and some of the original tools were repainted in gunmetal. Also a proper Commando tank commander was added.

All in all, I am satisfied with the overall results. What do you think?
Thank you for reading this article!
