Rivit, in answer to your question No !

I don't think I've seen one on UTube ......yet . The colour would depend on the age of the damage I suppose . New armour damage do you think a bluey metal hole, where the heat as it impacted would leave that sort of colour . Of course on an old "wound " rusts, Amig. Have some great  videos on line .


It just getters better , oh that steel pic is the set up you need ! Not me face 20

Hi Steve

No worries,

you could do worse than look at anything by Andy Argent or look at Wouters Char Bis?

Hi Everyone

John/John - Nothing of any note on UTube. I tried to find Wouter's Egyptian burnt out tank but no joy. I will now have to go through my MM mags and find it there. Thanks for the support guys

Finishing touches are done so I am calling this one done.

The jury is still out on the tarp. I was inspired by this photo


Honest opinions would be nice as I'm still not sure. Hopefully once painted it wont be so much in your face


There were some clips and brackets on the rear leg supports


(For discussion purposes only)

These were replicated with PE, pewter, rivets and styrene rod



After speaking to Frank Dobson about this photo


(For discussion purposes only)

it was agreed that the wire is there for support of camo net, twigs, branches etc. This has been replicated and the camo net will be added at the end of the build


Other final jobs were the shovel, drilling out the sight, weathering the other tyre, and a few rivets here and there. This will be left to settle for a few days and then the cleaning process will begin

​Some very fine work my friend. Don't know if this is any use but it was my attempt at showing a knocked out vehicle.

Fantastic detailing Steve.thumbs upsmile p

As for the tarp it looks a bit thick and can use some more creases but that’s just my opinion still have to try out the Milliput I bought last year.face 20

Hope you keep the tarp on the barrel and don’t cover-up the shield like in the pic.wink 2

Looking forward to the painting stage.

Fernando - Your dead right mate. The bag over the muzzle is far to thick. I have redone it and added a few more folds. Let me know what you thinkyes

Very nice Steve, the muzzle brake’s shape is better shown this way and with your painting skills it’ll be great when finished.thumbs up

Scotties photo shows it all , I remember that now. thumbs up

Have to agree with Fernando about the tarp, still at that scale I think you work wonders.Are you going to show the end of the muzzle cover?
