I thought of a bare metal tank because it is my first time making a tank.
I changed my mind to paint the Berlin camo.
I removed all the assembly that I have made so far and painted the whole tank with white primer.
It is drying.
I love making models, so I'm going to make them using the manual provided by ARMORTEK.

Youngjae, I really look forwards to seeing the Chieftain in Berlin camouflage. I wanted the factory model to be painted that way, but got a bit worried by the amount of work ... now I am very tempted again!

That'll make 3 of us then but my lower hull is going to be satin black; hey, we could even have a parade but a few more would be nice! :wink:

I want to collect the photo data from the internet and paint it that way.
Thank you, Kian.

Progress of the No.5

I enjoy the pleasure of assembling the tank calmly while looking at the assembly drawings of ARMORTEK, although the speed of the work is somewhat slower because of the simultaneous painting and assembly work.
Today I have temporarily closed the track of my tank. My tank is getting very nice. :D

Yes it is.
