Many thanks for your kind comment, Zac! ;)

Yesterday I added another layer of oil paints using vanDyck's brown:

Metallic paints in place, next up will be rust and streaks.

Beautiful work Ondra, she's looking fantastic! It's so hard to believe (as always with you) this is all in 1/144!

Many thanks for your kind words, Zac!

Yesterday I was experimenting with rust effects using Golden Ochre. I did not want to overdo it, but at the end of the day, the effect is so subtle it is barely visible. :)

Nevermind, another attempt today evening.

Ondra, this is just a beautiful build, and if it weren't for your hand in the pics, I'd think it was 1/72nd at the least.

Don't worry about the subtlety of the rust effects, I believe less is more. After having been an armor crewman operating tanks that stayed out in the open for decades, I'm thinking these tanks probably didn't get as rusty as some would believe, so you're in great shape there.
