Hi Everyone,
In between working on the Hummel and waiting for parts to turn up from Tom up there.... Very Happy  I have also been doing my Tamiya Static Tiger 1 which I have turned into a full option kit. Also gave it a repaint and changed it up a bit..... thumbs up 

Cheers Ken

It's original state.




The rebuild starts....

Can't be worth too much its got a few dings and dents not exactly off the third riches show room floor ...lol but I guess it only aids in the value kinda like a pickup truck just adds character ...great job on the battle damage

Yea, to be specific I really like the overall sand-worn look of the vehicle. The long scratch on the side of the turret especially caught my eye, it looks awesome. 

Have you ever spelled out how you weather a tank like this? The paint wear looks perfectly realistic.
