Hi guys,

Finally finished my "M3A1 Stuart" of Academy. :-)
Here are few pics. I've tried a different weathering this time. Cos..u know, i'm making this for my shelves, and when it's for my shelves i don't like heavy muddy,rusty weathering.
Mostly, i've tried to give an effect of a "museum tank" or " preserved tank" anyway...

I'm waiting for your opinions

(And i hope that picture affair works this time !)

Nice job here. I like how you have "picked" out the rivets, and your weathering, lots of colors blended well.

ps: Neat decal!!

Hehe yeah "pain in the ass" for enemy infantry maybe, but to were that name and face a stronger axis tank might be risky and daring But very nice and cool tank, really nice with the name and the chick too

Very nice finish M113! I am thinking of getting me one of these kits and finishing it as a Soviet Lend-Lease Stuart.

Did you use the rubber tracks or the individual bits?

Nice Job! I am working on the Honey version of this kit - it is a sweet little model...I like your color variations. I am planning on doing the rubber tracks as mine has the skirts on...

Anyone have pics of this gal finished in British colors or pics of the real thing?

Again, Nice job!!

Good job M113. Did the decal setting liquid "damage" somehow the underlaying paint ? I can see a fancy green shade under the "Painintheass"...
Ciao



P.S.: I didn't manage to get Turkish lesson yet, but one day I'll do it...

Thank you very much guys :-) for all your messages.

Now the answers,

Bombshell : Nope..i used the rubber tracks ( i never liked that individuals)

Scoccia : That's the different style of weathering i 'm talking about. It's real different huh ?
As u can see same weathering has been done for whole tank , all surface
