Hi everyone

Here is my recently completed British Challenger 2. It was built OOB, painted with Mr Hobby acrylics and weathered with Promodeler 'sand' wash. For the camo netting I used pieces of bandage soaked in white glue with mixed herbs sprinkled over it. Hope the cockroaches don't eat it :)

Thanks for looking.

Cheers
Greg

That's a damn good idea to get some scale foliage. Looks really effective. Nice job!

Hey Greg,

that looks really excellent! Great job on the camo and I'd say the Colonel (i.e KFC) would be proud of the herbs you've used!

Cheers

That looks great Greg. Like the weathering and camo net, nice and simple display too.
