paper), the rods fixed on right mudguard (cut wooden slat), the helmets
on the lights and on the smoke grenade launchers (cut from figures by

The decals are printed using the methods described in the "Tips & Tricks" section.
The camouflage has been airbrushed with Humbrol 93 paint and painted with thinned sand paint to get sand patina.
