I've finished this, now! Personally I think it could do with some livenin' up, like the use of some stowage (again), but let me know what you guys think!

Hi,

Maybe a bit more dust on the lower hull where the wheels are. But it looks darn good as it is now!

Actually, the color seems to be pretty dead on from the color shots I have seen from the period. A little artistic license might as you say "liven" her up a bit. But I really like your results.

I might add a bit more silver to the tracks that are in constact contact with the ground. These areas get polished up rather quickly.

Excellent job!

I'm thinkin' the same way as you, but it'll only be a case of me goin' over the tracks with a moistened soft cloth to reveal the base colour underneath, which is X-10 Gunmetal, it's what I use as a basecoat for all my tracks, jus' so as it gives me options to do this if need be!

This will be set into a diorama, so the settin' of either a road or a dirt track will dictate whether I do this or not! Cheers man!

Hi Paul!

I have seen pics taken on very muddy conditions, roadwheels tracks and all covered with mud and still those parts of tracks that contact with ground are shiny metal.

Cheers Mikko

If you want a splash of colour, just add a bucket or crate of apples. Not often seen, and it does look good. Maybe an eating figures beside the tank?! I think a soldier on smoke break would be easier to find, then add a different hand and Hornet 'head with eating expressions' head :lol: ...

Tank itself looks really good

I'm plannin' on addin' some helmets hangin' from the sides of the turret. Can anyone suggest to me how they were attached, I know in some reference pics that one or two were hangin' off the hook near the gun mantle, but I plan on addin' three on one side. It looks like they may have been strung together with cord, but they're lyin' flush up against the turrets side!

Looks like they strung a piece of wire/string from the hook near the mantlet to the hanhold above the turret doors and then hung the helmets on the wire/string.
