Stunning work, Zelda!

I’d love to learn some of your painting and weathering secrets some day as your work always looks just perfect :D

I think he just photo shops the pictures! :P

Seriously, I ran out of words some time ago. Inspirational would fit. As would envious. I've seen some of the finest models anywhere at the Cincinnati invitational contests but you could kick their butts with some of these.

Thanks very much for the comments,the technique for the winter white wash chipping was done with tooth paste and sea sponge,will post a {how I done it} in customs & mod on the next tank,I think it is the easiest & cheapest way,works fast too.

Thanks Normandy!

You are perfectly right about Zelda's work, he is one of the best modelers around.

More armor vehicles are waiting in line to be built and customized by our friend Ken in the near future, we'll keep you posted.

AMAZING.
I really love these Winter schemes. Very well done!!
But one question remains:
Are you sure about the sighting mechanism at the VIERLINGS ??

Does it run and fire? Everything else about it looks like the real deal! If only I had a fraction of your talent. :salute:
