M8 Greyhound - NASCAR Style

Not really, but, boy, did those French know how to mark-up a vehicle! I decided (finally) to model an armored car of the 2nd Plt, 5th Sq, 1st REC, 5th Armored Div of the Free French Army in France, 1944. Here's a side shot:

And a front shot:

And a rear shot:

The decals were from the kit and were the typical Tamiya water-slide type. They were applied using Micro Set and were hit with Micro Sol where needed to get them to snug down over the rivets and ribbing. The model was then air-brushed with a fine, misted coat of Vallejo Matt Varnish (70520).

Next up is painting the attached tools, finishing the turret/gun assembly, and then beginning the final weathering.
