Week 110  This week we get the more ammo boxes

The bits we received

And what we did with them

The ammo boxes are glued together prior to painting.  I'm not sure whether these should be red oxide, or field grey ?  Any suggestions ?

I finally decided to paint the ammo boxes red oxide.  I have no idea if this is authentic or not.  My reasoning was that they looked like permanent fixture in the tank, and the rest of the area was red oxide, so these may well have been the same colour.  It sounds plausible, and I think it looks OK.  However, it could be completely wrong of course......

I painted the clasps brass, and I ran some black wash into the groove on the front of the boxes and the hinge line on the top.  This gives them a little more life.  You can see the black in the hinge line on the last photo.

Finally, they are glued in place with super glue.
