  2. if you're still interested found the echelon decals for tri-colour M1A1 https://www.zedhobbies.net/echelon-fine-details.html scroll down about ten and you should see it on the left side
  3. while it is forty bucks for the paint it is quite accurate as SMS is an Australian company, i have the green and brown for my M113AS4 and I am happy with the match but otherwise good luck with the Aust colours 20 years in the Aust military and vehicles up the ying yang but it was still difficult to match, for the brown do not use Vallejo Iraqi Sand to light and to yellow try model masters 1742 dark tan with about 10-15% 1735 wood worked well to my eye, but for the green first off do not use FS34102 this is not even close, you could try mixing Tamiya XF-62:3 + XF-52:3 + XF-2:1 or maybe Vallejo

  7. Barrels nil LionMarc did one sometime ago but it is now out of production. I recently completed the trumpeter offering a combination of the op telec and base Challenger 2 kit and have now got the RFM kit and I have to say first glance this looks like a very good kit.

But having said that the Xact kit is difficult to find, therefore the only real choices at present are the RPG and Trumpeter kits.
  12. Tracks on most modern western vehicles when new are black but quickly become a darkish brown. The best two options for this are Humbrol 173 Track Colour, this is best applied with an air brush as it may go on too thick with a paint brush and if this your only option then the best paint would be Vallejo Model Color 822/150 Black Brown, this may need a couple of applications but in my experience with Vallejo they don’t build up For the pads Vallejo 826/168 Black grey or their Panzer Acer 306 Dark Rubber.
