Just seen this one Aaron and it's nearly over great work by the way and the painting looks very good indeed even without the wash. But I understand what you mean about meeting your own standards.

Looking forward to more

It all looks good to me Aaron - in such a small scale, I think a stronger, deeper

wash is needed to add sufficient depth.

The tracks & roadwheels are great!

Well, I can see the pictcures now. I like the camouflage job, splatters aside. The overall wash seems to have brought out a number of highlights, even before you have done a pin wash. The wheels and tracks are awesome, nice work.

Thanks Ian,Patrick and Joe.

Chipping done, I love this stage and find it hard to put the sponge down.

It's pretty hard out but I had a lot too hide.

Some rust streaks

And just for funsies I used some tinsel for turret optics.

4 of the slots are moulded closed and I should have opened them up in the build stage but meh. I want to get some dirt on the running gear and hull then pigments on the tracks and road wheelswheels.I read about using pigments through a airbrush so I might try this for the road wheels.

Nothing wrong with a nice bit of chipping Aaron! I like the use of the tinsel & I'll even forget that German optics were a green tinge! ;)

Nice, so what you have done is add chipping and then rust effects with a piece of sponge?

I blame the box art.

Chips done with the sponge Joe, black and brown acrylic. The streaks are Ak Enamel.

Just caught up with this. Cant be said in single words so..

This is bloody awesome! I can't begin to believe that this is 1/72nd scale.

Love the colour, the camo, the chipping, rust and dirt. Great work!
