Exactly.

You said I got them at the wrong angle. I assumed you wanted to see something up close specifically.

LOL .
I was joking about their arrangement in relation to the lines on the cutting mat ;)

You should be close to completion on this M41 , no ?

Getting there. I still have to finish some of the small parts, clear coat it and also decide if I want to attempt to weather it or just go for the fresh off the assembly line look.

Wow ;D

I hope you're happy with it ,,
Great job on the dry-brushing .

I assume it had a two-piece barrel ?
How'd that come out ?

Cheers ,

Yes, it had a 2 piece barrel. I am actually very please with it. I glued it together and it lined up pretty good. A little pit of 1200 grit sanding and it looks like a single piece barrel. I even filed down and cleaned up the lines on the flash suppressor.

Trying to show the pin wash. I really need to set up a proper lighting booth to take pictures in.



Not the best picture. I will take another shot of it tomorrow. Also I am not sure I have the right color for the wash. It is a burnt Umber with a touch of black mixed in. Perhaps not enough black. Not too sure yet.

Looking good so far! You can do different colours and shades of streaking to help achieve that depth you're after.

Wash looked great. I don't use black for my washes on tanks. They play in the dirt so burnt umber is good looks like dirt piled in the creases
