Calling this one done. Sorry for the lack of final weathering photos but got it all done in a burst of work over two nights. Decals went on with no issues, then applied a coat of aqua gloss to seal it in in preparation for weathering. Not a large amount of weathering was done but products such as pigments and washes from Ammo and Tamiya were used to make everything a bit more realistic. Learned a few lessons and improved some weathering techniques. Looking forward to trying another armor kit.
