Great.
Love the subtile chipping and weathering. The mud is very realistic.

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! This is an excellently build tank. please share some in-progress shots and some information about the building process with us. Most interesting would be your fantastic paint and weathering job.
Thanks

What a beauty! Who would have thought five years ago we would have had such a range of Great War armour available to us which, in accomplished hands like here, can be real showstoppers.

Maybe one of the leading kit manufacturers has already done it, but I would love to see a state of the art model of the greatest field artillery piece of the war, the French 75 mm.

Best wishes
Nigel

It was finished Tamiya Medium Blue as a start. I then drew in the various patches with a black pen and masked off two of the blue gray patches. I thought this was going to take me until next Christmas so I broke out my Vallejo paints and brush painted a patch brown as a test. The brush marks faded away so I did another in gray-green and another in Stone. I outlined the patches with a Micron .005 black pen and the airbrushed a mix of Dullcote with a few drops of Floquil Roof Brown and Grimy Black to tone out the colors. Military dry pigments were added for the Western Front mud and dust on the carbody, running gear and tracks.
