Hey man! Yeah, I don't know how many times I've watched that page. It's the tanks from the first picture that I've based mine on.

I have a question. There is supposed to be a balk kreutz on the back of the turret, but the decal wont fit because of the U-shaped lifting bracket. Would it look wierd if I handpainted that one cross and not the rest? What's your oppinion?

Good stuff, Henrik.

I would advise against hand painting ONLY one cross. If it were me, I would try a little surgery on the decal to get it to lay correctly, then maybe just a little paint touch ups.

Time again for an update! As RickLawler sugested I only handpainted the one cross. It may look a bit crude, but it will do. Humbrols flat white is the WORST color to work with. Next time, I'll know better how to do! I'm thinking about switching to Valleio colors.

After I had painted the cross and let it dry I did some oil filters and some detail painting.


I then sprayed the whole model model with Tamiya clear to prepare for decals and futher weathering. After I had put on the decals I then again sprayed a coat of Tamiya clear. During the drying the decals started to rinkle and i had to try and straighten them out. Anyone else had this problem? Well, after that was taken care of I did some washes with a mixture of raw umber and black.


Next up are som paint chipping and scratches. This is the most important part since I dont want to overdo the chipping. I have only done the front, but I think it looks OK so far.


I'm gonna continue the chipping over the weekend and do some small rust streeks. What oil color is best for fresh rust? Raw/burnt Sienna??

Depends on the kind of rust.

For fresh (new) rust, I add a bit of yellow ochre to burnt sienna to make it brighter red-orange.

For medium rust - use burnt sienna straight from the tube.

For old rust - add a tiny bit of raw umber to the sienna.

This is the way I do it...there are, of course, other methods.
