Hi Andras,
I really like your build-excellent job with the P.E. Sometimes we have to try something "weird" just because...
The only constructive criticism I would give:
The colors were a little dark and the yellow really looked "yellow" rather than a buff or sand color.
The wash was a little heavy. I used to go heavy on the wash and now I use cotton swabs and a paper towel to soak up the excess. You can always add more later but it's harder to take it away.
Thank you for sharing a great build.
Don "Lakota"

Congrats on the finished build and campaign!

Cristian, Help, where do I add the extra photos? I just did them in kitmaker, but how do I get them to the 150 campaign?

Looking forward to the next one



Speaking of which, I will not be able to lead a follow-up campaign due to lack of time so, if any of you would be up to the task please feel free to reuse the name, if you want.

Angel: It is a simple kit so the number of photos is fine. Thanks for posting them!

Andras: A toy? Most certainly not!

Not sure if this request was a general one or addressed to Don, particularly but here are a few things I have noticed, if you won't mind, on an otherwise great model:

- the camouflage edges are a bit too hard to my taste and their run is a bit weird, if I might say so here and there like the "beaks" on the right side of the lower body and towards the right-middle area of the gun; free-hand airbrushing might be more suitable for such jobs
- the oil smudge is a bit heavy, specially at the lower front; you might also want to apply some pigments for added texture around the running gear
- visor ports and headlights would benefit from a layer of silver paint
- I miss scratches around the turret ring and on the fenders

Now, all these are really no major issues and I realize the images make such things a lot more visible than they actually.

It IS a great effort with all the PE parts.



Thank you very much for your kind words. I tried a weird-looking camo because it was, well, weird The next one is going to be airbrushed for sure.

Smudge... yeah, it does look strong -weirdly it does not look so heavy with the naked eye. (The camera is brutal.) But I'm not happy with the weathering. Only the dust is something I like.

Vision ports: yes, I forgot to paint them... Ups.

Scratches- again, it's something I'm not sure about- either too much or too little; I can't get it right. Do you think it looks like a toy?

Hi guys,

I didn't post a second WIP photo and don't know if in the process of being painted counts.

Here is the photo in the process of being painted (just airbrushed the colors and pending the detail brush painting):


Best regards,

Kelly, Brian & Andras,
Love those builds-something different you don't see every day.
I loved Mark's Hetzer and tutorial.
Christian-thanks for another great campaign.
Take care,
Don "Lakota"



Thank you for your kind words. I would like to ask for some honest critique of the build; would you mind giving one?
