Great build and awesome camo scheme! What color and brand did you use for the green color?

I've always loved the S-tanks and thought that they would be so incredibly hard to successfully engage with its impressively- sloping armour. The late variant you built is really cool.

Thanks a lot Bill!

The light green colour is Vallejo Game Air 72.732 (Verde Escorpena). I wouldn't recommend it though. Although it makes for an interesting contrast, it's completely innacurate. Another thing is that the paint dried to an almost gel-like finish, making it impossible to gloss coat or even weather. The other colours are AK Real Color RC080 and RC082, and Vallejo Model Air 71.024 mixed with Ak Interactive AK730.

Thank you Frank!

Although the Leopard will always be my favourite tank, the Stridsvagn is starting to grow on me, especially the C version with it's jerrycans and camouflage. You can clearly see the tank was designed with a cold-war gone hot scenario in mind, the sloping makes it perfect for a hull-down defensive position, especially in combination with the hydropneumatic suspension system. The Swedes did live-firing test on the Stridsvagn and the results were quite impressive if I recall correctly.
