Concerned I may have been too subtle overall with the chipping and weathering.. my thinking was that these were only in service a matter of weeks at this point. But I guess they had a hard life in Normandy and aesthetics counts for something. Looks a bit 'dull'.
My preference - WW2 RNZAF & Pacific Theatre, Allied & Axis, ETO, Mediterranean, AFV & figures
I enjoy doing research
Interestingly there is actually a fair bit of chipping and staining and even some rust drips.. but I have great trouble getting it to not look clean in photos, I think it is the slight sheen and olive green somehow!
