Some finished photos of my first tank in 40 years and first ever in 1/35.
I'm pleased with the result....it's probably not very authentic, but I like the look.
Any and all comments welcomed.

Actually, yes, I really did. There were challenges and a lot of new techniques learned, although most were a straightforward crossover from other genres.
I can see the other tanks in my stash will not be gathering too much dust!

It looks awesome. I like how you managed to get the camo into all the nooks and crannies on you first attempt.

Looks really good. Where you've painted the inner road wheels black should be dark yellow or silver (rubbed), because the only rubber we see is actually the stepped into strip at the edge of the wheels. The extra metal stopped the track teeth ripping the rubber to pieces. A quick rub over with the lead pencil will nail it. This is a beautiful effort so forget the planes, you're an AFV natural!!

Thanks Bish. I'll see if I can give them a rub over.....if I'd known when I was doing them it could have saved me a lot of time....heck these things have a lot of wheels! I will admit to not having done any research for this build...I relied on the kit instructions and what "looked right" so any criticism will be taken fairly on the chin! My stash contains several other vehicles with similar wheel configurations, so I'll know next time!
Cheers
Tania

No criticism at all. It's a simple one that took me a while to learn when first starting on Panthers. It looks like it should be a larger load of rubber than the outer wheels. All the rubber on these wheels is actually why I prefer all steel wheeled Tigers. This is a great job, and I mean that, which is why you should do more.

Thanks....I didn't mean criticism as a bad thing....more as something to learn from which is the reason for being part of these forums. I've learned so much from people here and elsewhere on the net. It has to be the number one advancement in our hobby over recent years....the freely available information and advice.

I never knew that either, thanks Tony I've got a couple of Panthers in the stash to build.
Your Jagdpather looks fantastic Tania, I like it a lot, lets see some more armour coming off your bench :)
I find tanks built OTB are a nice way to relax between aircraft builds.

and here was me thinking a nice way to relax between builds is do nothing :lol: Perhaps on a broader societal sense G1 has stumbled onto a drug free rehab for depression and anxiety, go build a tank! Anyway enough of the town clowning around, nice work Tania. OD did say it is refreshing not to see a tank chipped to hell, and I agree, but how about a base or a figure? It looks lonely! ;)

Great job, Tanja, but be careful, building AFV's can become addictive !!

Very nice looking build. I like how you did the camo. I joined this sight as well to learn new tech ideas and thanks to Bishop I now remember the pencil trick on the wheels. Good to see other peoples builds.
