Smile Sturer Emil -Completed

I did this a while ago as a side project. I added fruli tracks, the AS barrel, and I bought Aber fenders but I decided it looked cool without them so I left them off. (Not historicaly accurate but I don't care) Its a pretty crappy build so I was surprised when it took first in the Junior armor at the 06 Nats. Don't be too critical. If nothing else, this brute looks awsome on my shelf.

I like the dusty appearance on the sides of the superstructure. Very nice job on that. The tracks look great, but I might have sanded them to let the metal shine through. On most pics I find that the metal tracks really get burnished quickly even on non-pavement surfaces.

Really nice work, deserving of the award. I've got one of these about half completed...somewhere in the closet.

Everything that Stuke said . I'd be proud of that myself and you've got the whole rust thing down pat. Did you use pain to get the effect?

It is "Did you use paint to get the effect?" not pain .

Thanks for the comments guys.

BTW, Mine says I can edit, but it doesn't work Mabey Gordy can fix?

Sehr gut!

The coolest way to look at this model is when it is on a shelf beside a Tiger II. They are both the same size!
