Looking good, JD. I'm always impressed by the quality of Tamiya's casts.

Thanks

Yes - Tamiya are great models. Good moulding. Fairly simple. Fairly cheap.

And she's done and ready for war...





















I actually really don't want to weather her and so I'm not going to bother. If I can find some info on "dusting" to take some of the sheen off, I might do - but otherwise, there's nothing more to be done.

Looking very good  :clap:.

Wish I had the patience (and talent) to do this.

I once put a Tiger II together and kept it as a reminder that I shouldn't buy any new kits.

Nice paint job JD.

I think a lot of modellers feel the need to throw a crap ton of chipping, mud, grimy streaks, blah....blah. Modelling is TWO things.......YOUR hobby and your interpretation.

Bravo man.....bravo!!  :bd:

Oh - you noticed that? I didn't actually notice it until I saw the pictures and I'd packed everything away.  C:-)

Thanks everyone. I loved doing this one. Done in record time for me.

I'm not sure I'll do the "build then paint" thing again...I think I'll revert to building and painting in sections.

I like that approach too. Work on one little area, take a break and come back to another.

Nice work, JD. You really did slap that one together pretty quick and did a great job too.
