tiger wreck 1/48

AFV 1/48.. everybody knows it, lovely thing
first time big surface scratch building such as skirts...

used knife and sandpaper for zimm damage, glued tow cables to simulate gravity and did some damage on mud guards and storage box

skirts mounting part was cut away and glued, then metal parts glued to it.. not perfect but for first time..
http://shrani.si/f/3J/jZ/4l999yov/dsc00565.jpg
also added supports for every part that can be seen because of battle damage (little triangular ones)

"beer guards" :thumb: and more zimm damage
http://shrani.si/f/1l/sc/1J3ArH2c/dsc00581.jpg
fist coat, no primer as always, nice thin enamel so that dark plastic bellow leaves shadows
http://shrani.si/f/3t/sg/2iFNZ0ky/dsc00656.jpg
second coat, a bit more sandish and less yellow but not everywhere, something like modulation with single-action

so far i like it, quite satisfied for bicycle pump powered "foot-action airbrush"
now i need to decide about camo...

tnx for watchin =)

p.s.
how do you guys make your pics smaller?
i use picture scale in gimp2 but it seems that it messes up some of detail even if i save it as best quality and everything
