Decals are from Syhart

Painted with Gunze acrylics for the scheme, other paints used, Tamiya, Vallejo acrylics, Gunze metalizer, and Vallejo metal colour. I used Flory grey wash on the blue and grey/light wash mix on the yellow to highlight panel lines and rivets. Final coat is AK gauzy.

Excellent. One day I'm going to have to try the Syhart decals. He has so many cool schemes

Nice and bright! How did the decals perform for you? Like TJ, I intend to try a set from Syhart at some point, but they look very intimidating. You did a great job on that Tiger!

Syhart decals perform great Mike, but you need to be careful, they are very thin and can tear easy and I had a couple of heart in mouth moments when they folded over on themselves. I use micro sol to set them.

I really like what you've done here. The paint work is certainly eye-catching.

Ces décalques sont extrêmement impressionnants!
