A12 Matilda II Mk.III

It was a pleasure to build this newly tooled kit, and the replacement Bronco tracks that I had originally intended to use on the older tooled Tamiya kit fit perfectly.
I highly recommend this kit to build and has 3x marking options.

Completed April 2020.

I had used the AK Interactive "Caunter Scheme" acrylic paint set "silver grey" for the paint scheme on the older tooled Tamiya kit... and I just didn't like it.
The "Silver Grey" looked far too close to the "Portland stone".

On this build I figured Tamiya's call outs were better... but the XF-23 call out looked too blue. In the end, I used an Italeri Acrylic of RLM76 (AP4786) which in hind sight is still, too blue... but slightly better? I'll let you guys be the judge.

A tricky masking job...

This one is stunning but I believe the Mk. II is more 'historic'

Thanks Olivier... And yes, you are right. Reflecting... I don't particularly like either builds now... of the silver grey. Something that I will definitely work on though.

I am right now trying this scheme on a Marmon Herrington MkIII. Quite a challenge...
