I got done with the second kit, the 28cm.  Weathered with a Dark Earth and some Mig Pigments.  i also moved my photo booth but the lighting isn't as good.  I may change back.

2 down, 1 more to go! The triplets ought to look great together once you've got them all done. Yes

Well, I've wrapped this project up with the 32cm rocket carrier finished.  Whew, I'm ready for a different tank....oh wait, I have the Tamiya kit to do as well. ;) Then I will have my fill for Renault UE's.

Nice! I bet you'll be ready to call it quits on the UEs for a while...but you've got a nice set for your efforts. Yes

Great builds and love the finished effects of paint and weathering.  The only thing that struck me as odd was how the crew would see out of those rounded shields.  After looking at photos of some real ones it looks like the shields on yours are on incorrectly as it looks like there are supposed to be vision slits in the front of the shields, It looks like yours may be on the top.

I must admit the first time I ever heard of one of these unique vehicles was from this thread so I am definitely no expert.  All in all you did an excellent job.

Yeah, I see that now. If you look at my first post with the instructions, they had it drawn wrong.  Thinking back I wondered about that, I was thinking it was just a handle to flip it from the outside.  I'll pay more attention next time, though I'm not too worried about it with these builds.  Thanks for the comments all.
