Stunning work Adam, especially the rather strong chipping (perfectly appropriate given the age of the hardware) looks awesome! :mrgreen:


Best regards

On the RHS of the turret is a grey, bowl shaped item held in place by some straps. What is it? Any ideas? :shock:

Got rolling (pun intended) on the wheels today, Ammo "European Earth" applied with VMS Alkyd binder. I like the VMA product over other pigment binders as, once dry, it doesn't change the colour of the pigments. Its also workable for about 9hrs and once dry is very solid.

Very nice Adam. :)
Good to know the VMS Alkyd binder can be used successfully with other products. The wheels look great.

I ran a few tests on my “test” model before committing. I wasn’t sure if the VMS pigments were specially formulated in any way. Not to say I don’t like VMS pigments, they just didn’t have the shade I wanted :D

Good thinking Adam. I should use a test model too, instead of practicing on the one I'm building :lol:
