Pretty damn close, nice work!

The one thing I notice, as compared to the sample, is that your light sand areas tend to be even stripes, where in the reference those areas tend to have some thicker areas of bubbles and bulges (how's that for tech-talk?).

Not sure if it's worth worrying about, however.

You definately have a nice piece in the works, congrats.

Rick

Hi Janne. Looks good. Green and brown match to my eye but sandgrey is just too "dunkelgelb". Go to visit IPMS Finland site and from there you find good samples on finnish camo colours. Keep up good work!

A few question Mikko!

I was under the impression that the green and brown was put over the dunkelgelb in some occassions and in others the whole tank were repainted in sandgrey, green and brown. At least thats my take on the pictures Ive provided.

Cheers

To my knowledge Sturmis were wholly repainted.

Edit: I meant those early Sturmis that came before summer 44.

I now see what you mean Mikko. I couldnt navigate on the IPMS-Finland due to my non-existen finnish.

Andreas have been soo kind to explain the matter to me. The reason for my misinterpretition is the colourplates where I have though the light colour to be either dunkelgelb or a midgrey.

I will repaint this vehicle but probably not within the coming three weeks. Then I update again.

Thanks for all support to everyone.

Cheers
