Looks great, Colin. Love your weathering. I've never seen that scheme with a hard edge before. looks cool.

Nice. I like that this late in the war the tank isn't over-weathered as some insist on doing.

Is it OTB? The figure is a resin one?

Really great job Colin, did the exhausts come with the kit? I like the paint scheme, it really sets it off. Best regards.........Dale

Thanks Dale, yes the exhausts came with the kit, I think the screens were from the PE set though.

I'm not a great fan of the "pyjama stripes" camo scheme but you've done a great job with this.

Nice subtle weathering, none of that fashionable but exaggerated "Spanish school" stuff here, which I think is very unrealistic in most cases given that the field life of tanks - especially at this late stage of the war - was often measured in terms of as little as a few days or even just a few hours after arriving at the front.

Im just getting back in to the hobby after a few years off, and chose this same kit. Im planning on using what my foggy memory tells me was my normal routine:

1. Paint camo
2. Airbrush Future
3. Decals
4. Pin wash, chipping, general weathering
5. Airbrush a very thinned layer of Tamiya Buff over the whole thing
6. Sit on shelf and enjoy

Does that sound about right? Any recommendations, especially given that just about every hobby store in the world is closed?
