well i got er done. the masking was a real pain but in the end it was really fun.
aparently the kit has some issues with the turret being out of place, but i am waaay to lazy to mess around with that.
the only reason for building it was the Digital camo scheme. i have absolutely no interest in Chinese armour otherwise. I may have rushed a few things in order to get to the painting stage, which to me is the fun part.
the only thing i am sort of unhappy with is the bright green could be a little lighter. I kept the weathering light as these tanks probably see the parade square more than the field.
it now resides in my display case where anyone who will see it will have no idea that the turret is off 2mm, or the paint isn't 100% accurate
comments good or bad always welcome

thanks guys! the encouragement worked.
I was trying to edit the original post to add some more info but the site will not let me for some reason.

anyway...its the bronco kit in 1/35 built completely OOB (in some areas poorly) heck i even left some stuff off. painted with Tamiya and valejo acrylics. first i sprayed one of the camo colours, then after it had dried i started masking.I used tamiya tape for masking the camo. I put strips of tape on a piece of glass, I sliced the tape into little rectangles. they were then placed on the tank according to the (lousy) paint guide. then sprayed the next colour
weathering consisted of olive green artist oils mixed with Mig thinner, slathered over the whole thing. once that was dry i drybrushed it with the base green mixed with white.
the lower hull and road wheels were given a light overspray of dust.
hope that will answer anyones questions
