I painted the model using Gunze Acrylics and weathering was done using, silver pencil, my airbrush and pastels coated with a flat mixture of Tamiya Flat Base mixed with Johnson's Shine Magic.  

The kit is out of the box with the exception of brake line which were made from fine wire.  The antennae wire is invisible thread.  

The kit is very basic and requires minimal filler.
