The kit is a AFV Club IDF Shot Kal which is basically a Centurion Mk5. I built the kit right out of the box adding a scratch mantlet cover which I have since discovered to be the wrong one. It is made out of tissue paper and lead foil. I painted it using Tamiya paints(base coats) Kaki and Dark Yellow. The tracks are the kit tracks painted with Model Masters Exhaust and dry brushed with silver. The rust is rust colored pastel powder suspended in alcohol. When the alcohol dries the powder is left behind in corner and the like. I added bed rolls from my spares box. The turret bustle is loaded with stuff from the spares box like jerry cans, tools, cable reel, and a scratch tarp. The tank is weathered with oil washes(Mars Black & Burnt Sienna) and pigments(powder and alcohol again) after doing some panel shading with Tamyia Kaki with a few drops of Dark Yellow added to lighten it.
