Looks very good. Yes, I'm enjoying the MR paints. Slowly replacing many of the Tamiya ones

Update In Stash:
Lots of 1/35 Armor mainly WWII German and a few Modern British/American pieces, 1/32 Aircraft and 1/48 Aircraft. Aircraft chosen to replicate RNZAF and RAAF types through the years. Some RAF & USAF types exist also.

I had an older Seehund model and it was missing it screw,
So i sawed it in half.
And gave it one of the more interesting camouflage options.
The dark grey is MrHobby paint and the white is Mig one shot primer.

I might do a small (test) vignette / diorama for it, would like to try to replicate water with ice .
With a new technique i am thinking about ...................


I just noticed,the turret hatch is the wrong way !
Easy fix

The sub from the thread looks outstanding. The weathering is spot on. I really like the waterline option you’ve taken with the second
