Matilda III/IV

  • move
Cesar presents his latest work, the new Matilda Mk.III/IV from Tamiya, 1/35, kit number 35300.

I love the caunter scheme, but I decided to build my Matilda with a flat "Camouflage Pattern Number 2", to get away from the current Matildas with CS camo normally used by modelers today (because they are more attractive, indeed) . The only additions I added are some Voyager photo etched (35300) and new metal barrels for the 2 Pounder main gun and co-ax Besa machine gun from Lion Mark. Heavily weathered to show a well worn veteran.

Hi Cesar, I'm trying to comment on your work for some time, but the web seems to have problems with that, as I said before in BM, "Chapeau" a magnificent job as always.
