Firefly IC Makeover

While working on my M4A3E8 I came across some discussions about the paint colours of Sherman Firefly's and discovered Mike Starmer's suggestion for SCC No.15 (which Firefly's were painted in) using Tamiya paints in the mixture of XF-61, XF62, XF2 at a ratio of 5:2:2. So, I decided to take a break from the easy eight and re-do my Firefly IC which was the second kit I did since returning to the hobby. My painting and weathering  skills I believe have improved and I figured this would be a good opportunity to improve the look of the kit.

Improvements: New set of T54E1 tracks from Dragon's Magic Track set, Driver's hatch is from Tasca, extra spare track from the original kit, tarp made from apoxie sculpt.
