Thanks for your feedbacks.

Still have to complete weathering but yes, that was too fast. Next time it has to be at least 1/48 with interiors and PE.

To complete the whole project I still need the building and the figures. Building is ongoing, the girl will be more complex to do.

Now the building.

I'm trying this:

I cut a piece of depron, added window border from cardboard and primed.

Separately I cut windows frame and applied a layer of transparent sheet on the back. Doors have been cut from cardboard too.

Now i'm evaluating the appearance and trying some color.

Few bits, especially the frame have to be adjusted or redone.

Thank you Monica and Andy.

@monica

Flag and antenna were not in the kit, and even if they were i wouldn't have used them as I they would be so thick to destroy the look of the model (in this scale).

I'm still working on the building, straightening some elements and looking for the right colors: doors and frame are now gray and look better.

In the meanwhile, I started the girl. She's not Boudicca and I'm not Paul ;) , so I don't know how it will end up but I like her for now.

And here is she close to the tank:

Thanks for looking,

Francesco

P.S. I tried to take another picture with the building behind but the wall dropped over the tank and now I have to glue back antenna and hatches :sad:

Wow, I reckon you're doing a great job on that figure Francesco. Is she plaster?

I'm back here, going slowly, adding a bit of putty and sanding, a bit of putty and sanding ...

I'm learning though, I think I've found the right putty consistence to better model it, but it's not that easy and still a lot to do.
