it sure it, somehow a heavy model always seems more credible rather than a light one

hi Dave and Gigi

for the anti slip, I used sand granules, lightly sprinkled over the surface

once the undercoat and base colors are applied, the sharpness of the sand granules will tone down and it will appear better

currently working on the dozer and the attachment(s) that go along with it

more images in a while

cheers all

Looks just like the real thing...What's your recipe for the current IDF color?

hi

I used Vallejo IDF color @ 70% + Tamiya XF-51 khaki drab @ 15% + Tamiya XF-62 olive drab @ 15%

the color was thinned to the maximum and spread over 3 even layers

as soon as it dried, I made some scratches to bring out the white undercoat and covered it with nato back


for washed I used enamels by ak , rust streaks

for highlights, I extra thinned the color and added a few drops of white and 2 drops of red

glad you like it

Guilbert perhaps you will consider sending in a build feature when this is complete or a photo feature. I look forward to finding out.
