Ta Geoff. They are black in the kit. I sprayed a light coat of earth to give a brownish tint with some black still showing through. Then I added some earth colored chalk pastel powders fixed with a PVA /water mix. The areas thet would chafe I used a craphite pencile to give a metal look without looking silver.

Thanks Theuns.

I haven't used pastels / chalk for a very long times.

I should start using them again!

what is interesting about this 155mm gun is that it needed supply of amm. It only carried 10 shells in the rear bay.
