The turret still requires camoflage and numbering, plus the tracks will get a little paint as well but apart from that iam nearly done :D

Steve,
Don't know what you're talking when you say you dread painting the camo???? - that looks AWESOME! I'd say you nailed it perfect - just the right amount of green and brown and perfect placement. With a touch of weathering to tone down the "showroom fresh" look it will be absolutely stunning! I hope mine comes out that good!

Can't wait to see it all put together. Really nice work on the whole project.

Hi Steve

Excellent looking camo and markings! Nice to see another late Tiger rolling off the production line. Very well done.

I look forward to each of your posts.
Kind regards
Tim
