Andy, the Raumer S had sprung crew seats and huge springs on the wheels so when a mine went off the vehicle jumped. Well that was the plan!!!
The 617 'wheels' had the fishplates painted in Vallejo Gunmetal followed by Natural Steel to try and get a used look but I think I'll have to revisit them once the shoes are on. I joined one set of shoes to see if it was possible to snap these into place after tidying up the halves. It is just possible with minimal tidy up,
The Raumer S was sprayed with Vallejo and Xtracrylic Dunkelgelb followed by a light dusting of both Vallejo Rotbraun and Xtracrylic Vietnam Green. I'd painted the wheel pads with Natural Steel only to read that the pads were rubber. They may well have been on the prototype but I don't think that's practical for a production machine, but to edge my bets I lightly overpainted them with Tamiya Rubber Black.
The swivel mechanism goes together well and was painted as per the main body with the pistons, which move, using Vallejo Silver.

No doubt you'll do it justice Francis.

Some progress made. Rigging, some railings and cranes added.
Long way to go yet.
Need to practice taking better pictures.
Haddock.

Got the major airframe together and canopy fitted. Next up painting the tricky U. S. Navy style four tone scheme.

After many years of having to be able to identify cold war vehicles and aircraft, I have a certain fascination - I doubt I will be able to recognise this one though once you've finished with it MSea!

Incidentally, in response to your opening comment, I always greet people with "The Fourth of May be with you" as we British say our dates the correct way round, don't you now that!  It really annoys those nerdy acolytes of "The Force" who still think it's cool to put "Jedi" as their religion on the Census form.  I treat them with the same distain as rivet counters  ;D
