You should really enjoy this. My modelling has stalled so I watch this for inspiration.

Henry My knowledge of armor is very limited, I not sure what the difference is between a linchpin, a kingpin or bowling pin..:silly: BUT I can appreciate quality model building and that is what I am seeing here. It makes sense as to what goes into making up a tank, as I watch your painting bring out the various parts. So well done and I'll be watching with great interest

Some more excellent painting. On the next to last photo the "side of the ?fuel ?water tank just outboard of the cooling fans" looks to be "textured" which does not show on some of the other parts. So Finally to my question is that texture your doing or is it part of the kit? Regardless good looking all around.
