Tamiya 1/35 Challenger 2

Dont you just love building these Tamiya kits, there so well made. This was one of the first tanks I built when I took up the hobby when I retired. Two years later I had another go at it because I wasnt happy with the result. I am more or less happy with it now, but with a model like this you can still play around with it. Not many colours used and all the weathering done with graphite.

  1. Can't go wrong with anything with the Tamiya name on it, Robert.

  2. Nice work on what's probably the finest tank available, can't go wrong with a Tamiya.

  3. Looks very nice. The graphite really made some of the detail pop.

  4. Robert, I just wanted to say the posts you have been making recently have all showcased really outstanding skills and outcomes - thanks for posting. And I agree with Greg that work with the graphite is really impressive!

  5. This is a very good presentation. I like it a lot ! Looks like you shrunk down a real one...

    Neil, as a former US Army tanker I'm biased towards the Abrams ๐Ÿ™‚ I think Jeff Baily would be too...

  6. Tamiya have a good reputation for quality and I think you've made the most of this Challenger, the graphite weathering works a treat.
