So - finally got the German Panther/Jagdpanther done. You might say I'm a tad off on the prolific side especially this time of year. But here they/it is:

Learning from another thread I used the magnet method with my own twist:

Wow!!! Those are outstanding! Did you use an airbrush for the camo or a stifling brush?

Something I've had in mind for a long time and have tried many methods. Stipple kind of thing but on a smaller scale. I was thinking it needed a different kind of paint applier so I tried rolled up paper, and other things that might hold paint and let it apply slowly. Then I saw a video and it gave me this idea:

The paint brushes (paint applicators) are on the right of the picture-

The paint applicator furthest to the right is actually a plastic tube from a Q-tip with the tips cut off. The Q-tip was a cheap brand called sound and body. The applicator is shoved into the tube.
