Thanks for your comments and support Tom. I appreciate it.

More bits added and first stage weathering. (Tracks and hull bottom, etc.) I'm after a sort of dusty, rather than muddy look to the tank.

Acrylics for the weathering.

Doesn't look much different from the previous images - but there is, everything is toning down nicely.....

Next up, because of the zimmerit, I'll have to paint on the turret numbers and the two hull balkenkreuz. Then more weathering.

Cheers.
Ron

A little update...
I've managed to get away with having to hand paint the numbers etc. - I've used the decals on top of the zimmerit, and surprisingly, they've turned out just fine!

I've also subdued the colours a bit more, to try and get closer to the dusty look I'm after.

Great job Ron. I think you've toned it down nicely and it does look a little dusty in that last photo.
