I've missed a few pages, sorry as the painting , esp with the camp was fantastic, like the line around the colours.
I'm with Steve on the base, its perfect, would have taken me time to achieve that look.
One brilliant model !:thumb2::thumb2::thumb2:

Mr. Benson,
I too am sorry that I have missed this excellence. The whole Shebang, from FT to the whipped up base is outstanding my friend. Heck of a job doing the black lines between the camo colors. That would have driven me bonkers, but you nailed it. Can't wait to see this finished!!!

What's up with the Jagdpanther in the background buddy???

Prost

Looks great. The bright painted to weathered is a great comparison. Very nice.

Si,
Apologies mate, I don't know how I have missed this up till now. That's its a cracking build all round a beautifully finished build on a great base.
