Tank Update!





Well, I went back and did some more work to the ol' tank. I masked off and repainted the treads with some Krylon Nickel, weathered them with a dark wash and some drybrushed rusting...and then went to town with some plaster of paris-based muck. I may have liked it better before the muck, but I still like the way it turned out.

Impressive!
May I ask if you've used some kind of blueprints to reach those level of accuracy?

Thanks, Javi!

I mainly just used reference photos and drew the basic shapes before I began building. In reality, this tank is more of a composite of multiple generations of British tanks, with some features that seemed to be most recognizable as the Mark V.
