well i can explain on english also. imo fenders are easiest scratch especially if they are flat surface like on luchs and so on..that i mean that top is not texturized like on pzII ,IV and so on.i always use foil from tooth paste cos is soft enough to work and still lot resistant in final position.that way i did workable front fenders on my king tiger.thing is (again imo) when u leave box fenders or shurtzen and u do damage on them ti looks so plastic at the end of process.u can sand down outh edges or replace them with scratch or pe (i preffer 1st option if is possible).hope that this will help you in next project.

yea i know what you mean... i thinned only front end where i cut off front fenders
t55 has that edge turned up on whole length and that seemed a bit risky to me (sanding or scratch)...
i know it looks plastic and all but i tried to make it as close to pictures as possible
and i didn't see that standard hard edge damage as we normally see so i just went with plastic ones =)
i could try and make it better but i'm afraid that i wont get same color in the end... will see =)

update...
pretty much done... i'm just not sure if i should put some clear over snow... will see in coming days if cracks show up...

i'm satisfied, i think it's close to pictures..
i know it's not standard model with skills shown on paint, washes and chipping as this tanks had fairly fresh camo
my goal was to make it dark and wet as on picture so most of chipping got hidden in the end...
i used 2 pieces of plastic bag for front armor tents and wet paper for rear
mud is mix of pastel chalk and enamel color and snow is mix of white water color and baking soda as soda on it's own wasn't white enough...

i wanted to paint coat of arms in front but i realised that enamel clear doesn't give any protection too late so i had to repaint it and i don't think it looks as good as it first did...
i added some mud to front and everywhere where soldiers would walk so it's not bad paintjob but mud on top of turret =)
i thinks it's pretty good for foot powered airbrush.. =)
goal was to replicate that melting snow and dry mud as those tanks were parked with their rears facing to the south.. i'm really proud of wheels... they turned out almost like real ones
hope you guys like it...
