I built this kit straight out of the box, the paint is brushed with Tamiya TS-27 Matt White, antique finish with Panel Line Accent Color from Tamiya.

Just notice the "Tiger Head" mark, because this brigade stationed in northeast China, so Manchurian tiger is the totem, and this is seldom in PLA or PLAAF.
