By the time you get the decals, a little black wash and some matt finish I think it will look great. No tank ever stayed looking showroom new.

Well... maybe. I don't think I can get decals over here, so might just use... ???

Or I could leave it of... but I do want an Aussie Lee for my alt history battle! :D

@ Rebel - I'll send you a sheet of British 15mm Tank decals. Send me your addy.

Here is the Nashorn 9/10 complete. The macro photos show me stuff that I am unable to see with my eye so I see some annoying touch-ups to do. Decals, crew and Commander tank antenna added.

Very very nice. Great weathering. The crew member and antenna are a gray touch.

What do you think of the tracks? Mrs Ober showed me how to mix silver with black to do the tracks. It was real easy to do.

So, do you just not stir it or what?? I see all black, all silver and different shades of both.

:bowty: See Ober, I told you not to fret and everything would come out just fine. It's looking good and, if you did use Humbrol paints, that could help grade curve.

Actually I have to admit, I used "Crayola Paints". :Tout:
