Also got the roll cage ready . . . the interior right now is in flat black, but I think it is going to be tan with some green accents . . . .

I worked on them one whole day using AK-INTERACTIVE pigments and paints . . .
The most disconcerting thing about working with pigments and paints is that you have to wait for them to dry. Before then you work mostly holding your breath . . . the colors go on darker when they are wet, and then they lighten up once dry . . . they gave the tires the right chalky and flaky look to the mud. I still have to do the final spattering once I have a rolling chassis.

In the meantime, I sprayed all the parts with primer . . . I like to use black primer for all the chassis and interior components . . .
I got the body pretty smooth too . . . ready for paint . . .

The fram is coming along . . . in the usual manner . . .
The paint goes on thin, great coverage, and the most important part is that it adheres very well . . . which is perfect for the rough and wet salting process.

Lots to do still, lots of airbrushing left . . .
The engine is almost done too . . .

This is the first time in a long time I hold off until the end to paint the body . . .
One final round of mocking just to make sure everything is going to fit just fine:
