The turrets on and this build is nearly done I've got a few little details left to so then I've got to decide on whether to apply camo or not and if I do what front, then it's just a case of basing it with the figures and it's done

The camo is painted and the decals are on a klear coated, aside from a few little bits and the weathering it is nearly time to draw this build to a close.

Nice, just the green though, I was hoping for other colors for a real cool "German" effect on the camo, but that works as well (not a critisism Gibbs, honest!!).

One of the most things I like about WW II armour is the camo, especially the Germans. Can't wait to see your weathering affects, great build sir!!

Cheers

Many thanks for the compliment on the camo work their is a brown on their it runs next to some of the bars although the difference is very little it show better on the turret but you have given me something to think about which is always a good thing, I'm going to let dry overnight so I get the best representation of the color,but looking at the pictures and taking your comment into consideration I will most likely go over it in a darker brown

Or that Rust color later in the war, 3 tonr camo colors seen later in the war perhaps. Me, nothing gets my notice more than great camo.

Cheers, reminds me I have some FoW pics on various camo patterns (Late Panther ambush patterns though) I have to post up in the Masters forum. Glad to be of some help and I await seeing the brown when it dries or a darker coat comes on it bud!!

The vast bulk of the work is done on this with a few bits left to put on an a final wash, this is how it stands at the moment.

It's been just under a year of work on and off but this build is finally drawing to a close, while it is far from accurate but it has been a learning curve in many ways, despite the difficulties that came up during the build I have greatly enjoyed it.

THanks for the close uppics, now I can see the detail Gibbs, NICE build, love the cobblestones on the scene you made.

Almost begs for a T-34 build and expand it my friend!!! (hint hint) ;) :twisted:

Cheers
