Those figures look great! I've found that when highlighting camo uniforms, Vallejo glaze medium is a big help. I mix 3 parts glaze medium to 1 part highlight color (usually beige or ivory) and apply very thin highlights, building up in several coats. The result is an even highlight across all your camo colors. I'll try to post a picture of what I'm talking about soon.

It's really nice! As I told you before, figs are amazing. I like BRDM's lower side a lot. Very good detailed and rusted.

Finnished with the washes and streaking and I think almost done with pigments:




Also tried the figures on.

I did a couple of washes with Mig and AK washes, did a filter with oils, and starting doing streaking effects but some of my filter started coming off so I will give it a couple of days to completely dry and cure. Then I will finnish the grime streaking and also do some rust streaking.

I don´t want to overdo the rust. I think that is enough. Now starts the weathering process. I need to make that paint look faded and old. A couple of washes and filters should do the trick. Some rust and grime streaking, then dust it up with pigments.

I will follow how you paint that BRdM. I have never made a rusty model, I will take a close look on it.

I changed my mind. won´t go with the slat armour on the BRDM. Only references I found was way too complicated to scratch build and I do not whant to end up with a "what if" compromise model.
All primed up:



Rust base:




I still have to work a little more on the rust. I will use the hair spray technique.

Some advance on the BRDM-2.




I had to shift the front seats back so that the figures could stand up through the hatches:
