Cammo is pure pain... maskin the three sides of the turret took me about an hour, roof and front are still not done.

Like the Malta scheme. Interesting kit, nice cammo. I´ll stay for tea time.

Thanks to you two. I bought this kit just because of this marking option, but now it's driving me mad. I've spent so far about 3 hours on masking alone, but only got the turret and one side ready. I think is so complicated as the kit so so small and there are lots of other parts in the way. The Panzer Putty isn't ideal either as it tends to flatten out over time. This means small gaps can close up again, resulting in even more work.
But I don't think there is an other way for me to achieve this look. That's why this is a side project, but I hope to finish it this year ;)

Great paint modulation one the main coat, very nice and flat, once that crazy camo scheme is finished and you weather her don't worry all that suffering will be worth it, amazing job so far Fabian D.

Thanks Guys and Mary... modulation is just a bit white in the XF-60... nothing special to be honest. I´ve done that without too much plaing or thinking. Kind of a reflex ;)

@Matthias, take a look in description of the project, I´ve written down some construction notes there. Be prepared to do some silly PE glueing like this [img1]

Shaping up nicely Fabian. I have the same kit in progress but it has sat idle for a while. I intended to try that scheme, but think I will try two-tone green for northern France. I have decided to leave the bolt heads off my worklist. I tried a few and found it took away any enjoyment I was having from the build. Good luck with the Malta scheme!
