Well Carlos, I really don't have a definitive place for it but Italy would be a great place to put it. Maybe close to the border with Germany.

Well I finally had some time to work on it again so I applied the decals, painted the hydraulics, the tools (base color), the hull machine gun, periscopes and applied a little rust to the exhausts. I also put in place the hydraulic hoses.

Here are the results.






Here you can see the hoses better.


Next, the mate varnish, washes, the chipping and the rest of the weathering.

See you soon.
Ruben

Hello again guys. and thanks for your comments.

After some time spent doing almost nothing I returned to his build to finish it for good so here is an advance.

I applied the stars and the lettering for the hoses, gave it some washes, filters and dry brushing to gave ti the "used" look. The filters and wash were done with oils and the dry brushing was done with Vallejo paints. I also applied a lighter shade of the sand color to create a better contrast. I still need to work a little more on the "feet" but I think it's going in the right direction.

Here are the pictures.










Although per regulation the stars should be in the sides of the fighting compartment previous experience show the troops that doing so was an invitation to suicide so they painted them in the engine shields. After all it's better to lose the engine than your life.

Now I'm going to work in the figures and the machine gun for the roof.
See you soon.
Ruben

Hello everyone. After some time gathering dust in the shelf I decided to finish this one.

I didnít take photos of every step so Iíll give you the run down here. I painted some figures to go with it so the scale can be better appreciated. The commander is from Dragon and the infantry is from Tamiya. The figures were painted with Vallejo acrylics. I also painted the .50 cal machine gun for the roof and added two antennas made from wire since the original ones got broken. I also added more vegetation to the base because it looked too flat.

And here it is, my last finished model of 2010;







Comment and suggestions are welcome.
Ruben
