Hi All! 

I was primarily an aircraft guy, but after building a few armor kits I can`t say that anymore...lol.

This kit is the old Tamiya kit re-box. Went together nicely.

I`m having a bit of an issue sizing my pics. Can someone give me the proper dimensions that should be used? This is as close to a normal pic I could get to after a bunch of triesTongue TiedTongue Tied

You`re using Flickr Bish? I tried posting from there and it didn`t work. It seems it worked thru PB..I can see the pics in my posts but I don`t think you guys can see it. I surrender!

I used the 2nd, simplified method and it seems to work. I think my problem was that I wasn`t in "camera roll" when I tried earlier. Thanks for helping me out!!

Thanks again Mike! I want to tweak a few things on the weathering, then spray it with matte varnish or Testor`s Dull Coat. The mud is applied a bit heavily but I plan on making a muddy Bocage/Normandy base for it. Thanks for looking and putting up with my posting pic`s fiasco!

Nice job on this old beast of a kit.

Just a couple of things.

The stacked cylinders on the right side are air cleaners and wouldn't be rusted up like that.

The rounded box-like object beside the muffler is the muffler for the auxiliary generator and would probably be a little more rusted.

You're welcome Len.

Looks like it's been in some deep mud for sure! I like what you've done. Looking forward to the finished diorama/base.

You have done a nice job on this, on the right base that muddy look will work great.

Some good suggestions from Phil as well.

Nice work! And the mud looks good and goopy. Yes

Thanks for pointing that out Phil, especially since It`s not finished and will be easy to correct. I saw cylinders and went crazy with rust...Stick out tongue
