Very nice.
The one critique I might have is that the rust and chipping is just a bit overdone.
I know it's the popular way of painting German armor these days (and you've done your work very well) but in reality these tanks just didn't live long enough to get that beat up and in the rare cases where they did survive I'm fairly sure they would have been repainted before they got that used looking. :-)
Maybe 70% reduction in rust and 60 to 70% of chipping and I think it would be near perfect.
Your dirt and mud are nicely done.

Mark

Absolutely, and I say so

Thing is, we've gotten into this paradigm that takes some great weathering techniques and, well, we just over use them for artistic effect as opposed to accuracy.
That in itself is OK; if we were to try and make our models look completely life like they'd be awfully dull.
BUT, there is that fine line between visually interesting and over done. It's a tough thing to master (I know I haven't) and I think that Adam is well on his way. Toning it down a notch will put him right in there with the very best.

Thanks.
Mark, as you said. In our hobby we must choose between art and realism. Pure realistic models could be a little boring for me I know that my taste has sometimes nothing in common with realism
