1/12 is a "trap scale". You have to fight with the Real one. (that's the main problem with large scales 1/24 and more). You have no chance to avoid the comparison with the real thing. Otherwise Large scales seem toys. Human eye can "lock on" everywhere.
I like your painting job so far, and it looks very promising!
Very valid point Alex, but again Adrian is a newbie, a very promising one that is, but I don't think that at this point he knows otherwise. I also think that at that scale, drybrushing per se is out of the question or at least he needs to apply some washes to tone everything down. I think that the AFV Nuts' techniques would be more then suitable here
However, a wash with the basic colour to blend and tone the harsh dry brushing would suffice, so Adrian it would not require any techniques which you have not matered yet, so go for it if I were you
