Now its time to paint your tanks.After I mix the base green base color,you need to make a very thinned down wash,60%water to 40% paint, very thinned down.

After you have made your wash,you need to use a large flat Bush,and brush it over the tank,The gray primer coat that you used will be the high lite on the model.Let the tank dry on a flat surface so the green wash will settle in all the detail. This method works will for looking the right scale.Paint 2 coats of this wash,to get the right color.

Next I will so you how to paint the black camo pattern.

2nd, is priming your model.This is very important,because this will be your base coat.You want to use a really good primer,trust me its worth every dime.You need to get an even coat,and make sure you cover the whole model.The best primer out their is ( tamiya fine surface primer) it is a about $10.00,but 1 can will last a long time.One of the worst things that can happen when you prime a model with cheap primer is a sand effected,and your
 model is no good!So get this primer it is so worth .

1 The first thing that you should do is find some good reference.You can see were the tank get dust and mud build up.Some thing I have done in the past If you have photo shop,is you take your reference,and pic the color with your eye dopper tool,so you can mach the picture.Then you mix you color to the color that you picked.Its a good idea to right down the mixture of your colors so it will stay consistent. This is a real good idea trust me.

Here is the reference that I am using.

This after I have pick the colors in Photo shop or any painting program,There is also a free program
named, Gimp, it works very well.
 well that is the 1st step next I will talk about getting the model ready to piant.
