Thanks Guys!

Thorst the paint work will be part from photos and because of gaps in information, part guess work.

It's not going to be perfect as converting black & white to colour is always going to be a matter of opinion and comparison. I don't mind this so much as long as I capture the feel of the original. To help in this I take photos as I go along and convert some to black & white to see if I like how it is developing.

I have attached a black & white photo so you can see my kinda method. confuse

Remember though there is no black lines yet... nor weathering.

WOW What a fantastic piece of work, I am new here and to see models like this I just cannot believe it, Helen has been working on this tank for a long time, shows dedication and commitment to the end product. Well done.

Welcome TramFan and thanks x

Slow but steady work on the tank model. One side coloured now have to decide on where the black lines will go. Weathering last when all sides are done.
