Daniel Smith This is a very good kit, plenty of detail. The tow cable wire are stiff to bend it to the right shape, some of the photo-etch parts need a small amount of modification. If I were to make another one, I would assemble the main six parts first to make it easier to fill and sand.
Kerry COX Is this to be a desert based vehicle or a 'mid summer in Europe' beast, as the dust would have been all over them. ?

Daniel Smith I went with the markings for 1945 East Prussia. On the weathering I first went it a black oil wash for the panels line, then that seemed to stand out so I redid some with a browner wash. Then with my airbrush misted on the Tamiya Buff for a dust look. Holding the airbrush about six to ten inches from the model and with a wild head, going back and forth, side to side to get a even mist coverage. This is really my first weathered up model, I'm slowing improving my weathering skills on each build I do.
Kerry COX I love the thought of the 'dust storm' from a foot away from the model, and how perfect that thinking is. In fact, that is a great tip for doing lots of different "texturization" (a new word for scale modellers) for a scene.
Just imagine an Abrams under all that oil smoke from the burning wells in Iraq during the war, and how 'sooty' it would have appeared. !!!
