NOW We're Cookin'
I like this option MUCH better for the unit identification. The black color is for 1st Platoon, and the "15" is for the 15th Armored Company. The "1" on the turret is for 1st Squad. I also made a stencil for the top hatch. Having markings to help prevent being strafed by friendly air power makes sense, but it also has the benefit of looking cool :)
Afterwards I gave each rivet a sepia wash, and then drybrushed the whole vehile in VGC Bonewhite. I'll do some paint chipping with a sponge, smoke on the exhausts and gun barrel, and finally some dust along the lower third of the hull. Oh and of course I'll paint and attach the tracks!
This should be done by Friday- cross your fingers!
