Frank Krause It looks nice for an old kit in a new box. Let's see, where you're heading, Fabian.

Fabian D. Well I tried to build it ooB... but i couldn´t help myself
Decals included are for the invasion of Poland and for a romanian army tank, but I´m going for the 713 of the 6.Panzer-Division, 1941 in Russia:
I really like the tons of stuff on the rear deck... [img1]?uselang=de
Fabian D. Paint is on now... quite like the stencils, easy and faster than decals, I´m shure with some practice you can achive some really nice effects with them

william wise I built this kit many years ago and recently bought the Tamiya re-box its still a nice kit and your making it look real good Fabian one of these days i will try stencils but im to much of a coward after getting that far i would hate to mess anything up

Fabian D. Thanks William, as i wanted to use this kit as testing subject for various techniques in the first place, I still wasn´t too afraid
But I´ve done a test run with the stencils first, and if you mask the area around and just gently push the trigger on airbrush you can´t do too much wrong...

william wise thanks for the tips that makes sense i might just give stencils a shot they do look better than decals

Alan Rush Looks great. Are you using the photos for a full diorama with figures or using it for the kit on the rear deck?

Fabian D. Thanks Alan, I´ve considered it... and wouln´t be too difficult to do so, but I´m shure if I would start the base, I´ll loose motivation in between... and I´ve got already too many started diorams... but maybe in a few moths? who knows? ...I don´t

H K Looking good. Thanks for the tips with the stencils, might give them a try. Certainly cheaper than aftermarket decals in the long run.

Fabian D. weathering on the tank done, reattaching the tracks turned into a little puzzle as they broke apart during the painting.. so I have to rework some spots
