Second color in. Not too happy with the results but I don't want to start all over. May do a little touch up later or tomorrow.

Small update.

Done with the camo. Did a couple of washes with Winsor & Newton oils with mineral spirits. Then a clear flat coat. Last started with the dry brushing. All this on the turret,till painting some details on the hull, pics later.
Here are some pics of the turret so far.










This are the fenders before and after the dry brushing, did it with the paint shown. A little tricky,
have to be careful it dries quickly and you have to clean the brush repeatedly. And when you
start again with fresh paint it can go too heavy. Luckily you can remove it with a wet cotton swab,
but it has to be done quickly, remember, acrylics dry very fast.

Like always, comments are always welcome.

Another update.

Finished attaching tools and tow cables to the hull. Fenders still off to ease the track installation.
Hull dry brushed and weathered with Mig productions P028 Europe dust. Kept it light, I want it to look fresh off the train fairly clean before deploying to the front, crew getting it combat ready.

Also the last few pictures show how I the general idea of how it will look when finished, if everything goes ok.
























Comments and suggestions always welcome.

Another update. Tank is done, now a break before I continue with the dio.
Here are some pictures of the finished tank.








Yea I know, the jack is too bright, will fix it during the dio construction.
Also missing the two rear lift shackles, (hope I spelled it right), will have to scavenge from another kit, both broke during weathering.











Like always comments welcome.

Nice work. As KuKŁiNsKi said photo etched grilles would really help finish this off, particularly as the open engine hatch draws attention to the rear deck.
