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.

Many thanks for your nice comments, KiwiZac and WD!

I kept on procrastinating on the next step, the unditching beam, as I was scared of working with the PE chains. But at the end of the day, it went quite smoothly.







Cheers

I think it looks absolutely beautiful Ondra!

Amazing detailing and colour subtelties in such a small scale!

One knows something is perhaps too fiddly when even Ondra has reservations!  ;D Amazing work!

Many thanks for your kind comments, Rookie and Zac!

I want to avoid damaging the PE parts on the roof of the tank, so for easier handling I decided to add mud and dust after the model has been glued to the base.

Therefore I started working on the base yesterday:





And hopefully this will turn into a burnt tree at some point. :)



Cheers
