Simon,
The Kent treatment on the wheels looks fantastic. Looks like I'm going to have to do that one too, but on the lathe like you suggest! The paint camo scheme looks great, I like the washed out effect - really well done. Amazing paint work on those wheels!
Best regards,
Bob

Hi Simon,

Your wheels looks fantastic, glad I inspired you into this so Bob go for it as well.

Even me as an Normandy zimmerit era nut find this late in war survivor fade colour look fascinating, you are very skilled with paint I must say, well done.
Looking forward to see more later on

Kind regards
Kent
It´s all in the details!

thanks for the good feedback fellow builders, there's a certain amount of artistic freedom on these late panzers, parts from other tanks fitted,odd wheels,anything just to keep it running,i like the random look,now to tackle the other side, regards simon.

many thanks for taking the effort to post, i am pleased that you like it so far, i always comment on a build on the forum no matter what level it achieves, its good to follow other projects and pictures, these big tanks are a handfull and it takes time to get used to the size, but when finished they are something differrent, thanks again simon.

So what's next, now that you have mastered this whole "tank" thing? :D

A beautiful looking Jagdpanzer. Another jewel for your display case.

Kind regards
