Hi Derek

Very nice. 8) Looks like it drove right off the front lines. Well done. As Simon said, it's great to see other builds being posted.

kind regards
Tim

Derek,
The winter wash looks great! Cool effects! Really nice detailing and weathering.

Will you repaint it again this summer?
Kind regads,
Bob

Derek,
I don't know how you parted with your masterpiece, but glad it went to a appreciative new home. Makes since to sell one to pay for the next one - but I want to keep em after I finish them!

Hi Derek,

Very good paint job. Looks like the real thing. Like Robert said, makes you wonder about your own paint job. Mine is yellow for the last three years and allthough I'm overhowhling him right now I still think about a zimmerit coat and a nice camo pattern. Would fit the early G I'm making now.
