Here is a 1/35 white metal and resin kit of a Ferret MkII Scout Car that I recently finished.

Daimler Ferret Mk II done in the markings as used by the Southern Rhodesian Armoured Car Regiment during the period of the Federation of Rhodesia & Nyasaland. The three assegai marking is the insignia used by the Federation command and the red/yellow badge is the tactical insignia of the SR Armoured Car Regiment.

Paints used – Humbrol 86 acrylic spray paint and Vallejo Grey/Black.
Decals of reg plates and markings are homemade and printed on paper. Did them this way as they then stand off the vehicle body.

Fingers stuck together loads of time as I had to use super glue for the resin and white metal parts, and there were a fair amount of small parts such as drive shafts, suspension springs, etc.

Very neat build. Maybe too neat? Are you going to add some weathering?

Very little if no weathering needed as they were immaculate at show parades such as the one seen in the photo below:
