I decided to try out a few new (to me at least) techniques. I'm trying to get a metallic sheen to weathered parts of the tank and equipment. I've not done this using a pencil before and I think it's far more controllable than just straight forward dry brushing a metallic colour. I've also added a camnet to the turret. I chose this kit because: 1) I made this one years ago 2) it's one of my oldest Leopards 3) I want to refine the technique before I use it on my latest kits.
Please feel free to critique and give me hints/techniques etc on how I can improve it further. Thanks
