I was going to start back on the Famo but whilst re-arranging kit box's in the room I come across these, started a couple of years ago and they had been 80% completed.
Nothing worse than half finished models is there :-X :| :|

Hi,

Had to do some more work to rectify the piping on the figures.
Here are some close up images of the work, will scrutinise further to ensure no shiny spots around the collars.

Wow,

The figure painting here is truly impressive. Even if it isn't the sharpest and detailed, I've ever seen, it really makes a natural feel to look at them. And the skin tone and lightness is spot on.

I like the weathering as well. Hundred variations of mud, rust and faded colour on a single vehicle.

Exactly

You are right ... the figures capture the mood and are very well done, now lets see the whole thing put together. Take your time, we are watching!

Thanks Guys

I've just re-commenced back working on the trailer.
Here is a couple of images of work so far.


Still working on detailing the chains and tie downs for the tank. Hence it will not be long before I mount to the board.
Got side tracked on a small quick build on an Academy Stuart.
Released back in 2002 I cracked the box and did not realize the kit come with interior detail, individual track and rubber band track.
This kit falls well below the price of the new Tamiya offering and gives you a lot more. With a little detailing of the 30 cals and antenna mount it builds into a nice kit.
