Ok, I think the 222 is now complete, there may be stowage to add at a later date but the build and paint is done.
I am pleased with the result as it started out looking very sad and neglected (I should have taken pictures before the rebuild).

The more observant may notice that I have redone the camo scheme as I was not to happy with my previous efforts, I think this scheme looks a lot better.

Back to the Elefant now.

Regards
Steve

Applied some very nice stencils to finish the 222 off.

Excellent makeover. The turret and gun detail is really nice. I liked your first camo job, but this is much better - very unique looking. Nice work all round.
