OK, still trying to sort out the numbers for this tank. I don't know if s.Pz-Abt 503 had red with white outline? If so I think this will be 224.

Anyway, here it is with base of Dunkelgleb, then camo with a wash.

The camo came out way too harsh for me so I added a very thin 70/30 thinner/base mix back on top before the wash. This helped but gave more of a chalky look, so I used a raw umber wash and when dry wiped it with a Q-tip.

Next up mud, dirt, dust, and tracks...after decals of course.

Cheers,
Donovan

Looks great! The moulded zimm looks to be a good rendition by DML.

Donovan, how hard have you had to work to get this dog up to speck?
The kit looked like a write-off, to me, while it was under construction but you have some how turned it around, nice work Mr.

Stevo,

Not too much really. Rebuilt the rear exhaust, made the foil fenders (next time I'll use thin brass, foil is too delicate) and played with the exhaust covers a bit. Added the MG from spares box and added wire to front headlight. Oh, and visor have to be cut on the turret. The spare track also comes from Revell kit. One last thing, I cut the tow cables from the kit parts, front and rear were separate and this did not work so I will have full cables. As I said not too much, perhaps it just looks better with wash and paint?

Thanks,
Donovan
