"Awesome" is, perhaps, a word I over use but, in these instances, is totally justified; Awesome! :mellow: :thumbsup:

I concur with our Marsupial Colleague.

Got the camo decals on the figure. It is the Russian Flora camo. I also started dusting it with dirt pigments but not done yet, I still have to do the right arm and hood. There are some other spots that need some fine touching up to do here and there. I need to get the shine off the body. I used flat coat but still has a little shine to it.

Ramba, if you can get some Testors Dullcote you won't be disappointed. Pretty much the best around in my opinion.

Tamiya's Clear Flat ain't bad but it can take a couple of layers to lose the shine of any underlying gloss coats.

I used Tamiya clear flat spray can. I do have Testors flat but needs to be airbrushed. I tried using a paintbrush and it came out semi gloss. I will eventually airbrush the Testors flat one day but for now I am moving on to the next build. Thanks for the tips.

After almost 4 weeks since last working on the stalker dio, I added some 1mm OD conduit for the oxygen hose. As you can see, I still need to flat coat everything.
