What paint did you use for the green on the camo? I have not been able to find one that was that spot-on.

You made the plastic look like metal weathered on the battlefield- that really ist masterful modelling. I'm always too impatient to reach that level. I love these little detailled features

Thank you all

Don, green is from AK Interactive line up, called "Reseda green".

Dark yellow is also AK Interactivce, "Dunkelgelb aus 44" if memory serves me, lot lighter than original dark yellow. AK has at least 5 different Dunkelgelb's....

These colors can be also found from AK's late war color set.

I was lucky and bought whole lot of good colors (for less than half price) from fellow modeler who changed his paint brand!

Fantastic! I have always wanted to build this kit! Looking at your photos with envy is giving some motivation. Did you use a special kit for the tracks or are those the "stock" tracks that come in the kit?

That frontal picture could almost pass for a photograph. Very nice work.

Very nice Miikka, your weathering effect is perfect. I didn't know you were such a talented model builder.

I’ve just seen this thread.

Extremely Kool!

I like the thinking behind the detail, where would paint be chipped? Where does dirt settle? Etc
