I've started yet another AS1 , only this time I am showing the exposed compartment - from and the drivers compartment from . Both are excellent additions and worth every penny!
The has been done with a mix of paints and pigments, as well as and dry brushing gunmetal on various parts. Still more photo etch to go yet!
More progress soon...

  1. Lots of great details there, Ian. Folks might be surprised just how MUCH dirt a tank can get inside during just one weekend training session. That's the true life of a tank crewman.
    A cleaner.

  2. Fantastic detailing, Ian @ianfoulk96
    Reminds me of my obligatory military service during training sessions.
    Lots of dirt cleaning after those sessions.

  3. Amazing job indeed, Ian! The exposed engine compartment adds a lorbti the model looks!

  4. Very detailed work, Ian (@ianfoulk96). Looks very realistic.

  5. 🙂 ... Greetings ... 🙂 :
    Interestingly exceptional detail work added to this build Ian.
    Surely a model project to be followed.
