*A medium size barn to be built. MiniArt 35558 European Farmyard

* Tank turret numbers will be in blue with a white outline. Use spraying template. Ref to my buddy Mike. Turret number 311.

*Figures will need minor face shadows. At least 72 hours into Operation.

*Mild lower hull mud. Dark Earth color. Mud effects minor. But a lot of focus on the "water spray" marks for weathering ideas. This tank has just been driving down the road, so the tracks are not muddy. Just the lower hull. Think "road grim" is the biggest effect to mist on. And some exhaust marks. Light yellow surface rust on the exhaust system.

Weather Conditions:
*Light snowfall the previous night dump about 3" snow covering the whole ground. Ensure you create fresh track marks into the snow. Also to add snow effects on the tracks of the Royal Tiger.

More to follow.
