This has just the right amount of weathering and damage! If there is to be an example of NOT over doing it, it is this model!

Great job!

Looking good Ron. Looks battle worn and weary, without the usual effects being too articulated. The stowage front and back, is excellent and the colours are tied together very realistically.
Looking at colour photographs from the period, the colouring would be identical and if thats what you´re out after, you should be very happy. But the "artsy" part of me thinks a splash of colour, like an identification panel, would break it up a bit and add contrast. Nice one.

Looks nice Ron! The only thing that looks out of place to me is the fuel drum suspended on the muffler!

Thanks Vinnie i really appreciate your kind words and for featuring this as it is one of my favourites,
thank you guys for the comments, Frank i completely understand what you are saying about the splash of colour to liven it up a tad but i the end i kinda just liked the "bleak" look of the the thing and desided to leave it this way, hi john, the drum is supposed to a water drum im not sure if this is even feasible or not or maybe it should be marked but in my mind at the time it seemed right,
