Welcome Conrad and fine work on that IV. Hope my Mk.I will turn out as good!

One small thing I find odd is the scratches that go right up to the gun sponsons. That would mean the vehicle crashed into an obstacle with the sponsons (or at least the guns) at some point, wouldn't it?

Cheers!

Very Nice, Like the weathering. One thing, the Lewis guns look too silver to me, you might want to tone them down a bit. Otherwise looks great. Al

Thank you everyone for your feed back!

I did the scratches with the sponsons removed but it makes sense that there would be some damage and scratches on the sponsons. I'll go back and fix that.

The lewis guns are a lot less shiny in person, but I'll go back and put some black pigments on them.

Thanks
