Images taken 06/05/21. This is my in ODL finish with a mud cam pattern. I've replaced both the baskets on the back with newer ones. I'm still getting the hang of brass folding! Not shown is the stowage I'm currently making for it.

  1. Looking very realistic, Ian!
    Love the weathering!

  2. Looks great, Ian. The brass folding looks fine. One thing about a well-used tank is that things like stowage boxes and thin metal guards can take quite a beating. They would not necessarily look perfectly formed on a real battered up/repaired tank. I follow this principle when working of Israeli vehicles in particular as evidenced in photos.

    • Thanks Colin, that's very true. I like to try and get mine folded and immaculate before putting in any damage, I find that effect works better for me
