The problems I have are when the cat visits my workbench when I am not around. The rear view mirror keeps getting broken off and the radio antenna gets bent

Sad to hear, but I think that cats love panzers too🙂 Anyway, I think this parts are easy to repair or scratch build

It looks like my decision to go grubby on the weathering has paid off as the first mission seems to be on black lava at ...

Hi Joshua, I always use Tamiya acrylic and I think the paints I used for the Caunter scheme are XF-14, XF-22 and XF-57 - not exact, but close enough for me. There is a link to the build report in the main description if you are interested.

Tamiya decals have the reputation of being a bit on the thick side, and the ones in this kit are very thick. Having said that, I'm useless with decals. Other people don't seem to have had a problem.
20. November 2020, 15:55
I just sprayed on the red/white rectangles rather than use those decals.

Very well done!👍

Thanks. It's only my third model, so I've still got a lot to learn. It might be a while before I move onto trying a diorama.

Third model?! The chipped white wash & mud looks great 👍

Cheers. It helps that here's so much guidance on various YouTube channels and all the various products available. Just trying to use a new technique/product on each model.

Great image. I see no camouflage pattern on this Matilda. Am I right ?

Hi Olivier, yes, in that photo the Matilda has no camo pattern. In the photos in this album there are some Matildas with the pattern. I think it depends on the year. I am using modeller's license here a bit, I will likely paint the Vickers Medium to be bronze green overall, but it just seems boring if both tanks are just green. Also I think the external fuel tank I added to the Matilda was not much used in the UK for training tanks, at least I haven't come across any pictures of it, outside of Tamiya's instructions. The unit the Matilda was from was for night training, and also used M3 CDLs so that would be another fun possibility for a diorama.

Resicast do make a CDL turret for Matilda or for Grant/Lee.

Good work! I like your dirt. 👍

watching -- I just finished this kit myself, really enjoyed how well engineered it was. What livery will you be painting it in?
4. April, 15:42
Tony G
Its really well engineered! Im loving building this. Will be painting it in the livery shown on the front of the box. Using XF-59, XF-23 and for the green I've chosen a lighter one XF-67. Gotta start masking it up now, which will be interesting!!

Nice result !
