Here my first attempt on a tank.
There will be coming up later a small Dio with the nice Stalingrad British tankers.
Enjoy the Pictures:

That is very well done indeed, the weathering is extremely realistic! Congratulations on one of the best tanks I've seen.

Hey Manfred!
I only wish my 'first' (second, third...) where like yours!!
Extremely well done! Weathering is fantastic! the shine on the traks is also very realistic: what did you use? it doesn't seem pencil to me...
I can't wait to see the diorama...
ciao

Hi,
thanks for your Kind words.
@Edo:
For the tracks I used Pigments (Gunmetal) from Mig

Stunning work, Manfred!  You could give tutorials on weathering.
Just a super job, my friend.

Cheers,
Ernie :)

That's wonderful Manni.

Aside from the build quality the weathering is outstanding.
