weathering as it just a bit of a desk play thing with me 1/72 tiger. I'll post a photo soon.
And mine just turned up today. It does indeed have double raised panel lines in some areas, but also single raised lines, and recessed lines - yes, it's got them all !! The panel lines don't worry me. My biggest problem is the back engineering to B2 specification so it will sit nicely along my anti flash Vulcan.
Not all fireflies sported this camo but this white, wavy under-part of the barrel was an attempt to make the 17pdr barrel look like a normal 75mm Sherman (from a distance it kind of works to a degree). This was felt necessary as the Germans would target Fireflies knowing that the 17pdr offered much more of a threat to their armour than the 75mm.
Hope this helps
