Managed to to a bit more on the panzer, mostly attaching tools & painting small details. The decals are done, a lot of microsol was needed to get the turret numbers to sit down on the turret side vision ports, not the easiest of positions to do.

....... not only Barking mad....... but rather good too!!:thumb2:
That really is looking the business,cracking work on those troublesome decals too mate. You really are turning this old,lacking kit into a very nice representation of an iconic Tank.:cool:
I don`t have Mr.Race`s "Dogs" pic to put up....... and i`m PRETTY SURE i`m not allowed to post up a pick of the other part of that two word expression!!
Suffice to say...... EXCELLENT WORK SIR , it`s a credit to you!!

A bit more progress, weathering the panzer with vallejo model wash, various stains using lifecolour oil & fuel, a bit of chipping, sand/desert dust applied using mig pigments. I've had a bit of fun doing the weathering, it looks a bit stark in the pictures with the flash, but better in natural light. A start has been made on the indy link tracks, the fun just never stops....
