Absolutely amazing. I remember commenting this masterpiece would be a shame to cover with paint... I was wrong. You did a great job, well done.

Gorgeous work, Vladimir!

The super-detailing work is so precise and clean. The paint job is perfect. The weathering is very convincing. Not too much, not too little.

Just a gorgeous model.

Congratulations!

Jim

Hello Vladimir,I am currently building some 1:72 Abrams, and to help me for detailing, have bought an Academy 1:35 M1A2 Tusk. I usually do etchings ( I model 1:160 train also),and will do etchings for my 1:72 models, but etchings in 1:35 scale are flat pieces. could you please let know the method for forming those trapezoidal handles over the engine compartment?
Very amazing building, with compliments, Robert
