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.
Very nice work as usual!! Welcome back James 👍
Thanks mate 🙂
Very good looking colours and tracks!
Looks great! I can't wait to build one!
Thanks Neuling and Ben 🙂
@ Ben - It's a superb kit to build mate. I highly recommend it.
Thanks Forestfan 🙂
Beautiful paintjob and model 👍
Thanks Rui. 🙂
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...
Good luck with it and post some progress pics😉👍
Just figured I'd add these links as they are quite interesting.
Very interesting ! Thanks James for the links.
