That is beautiful, Russ. 

Love the weathering and how it ties it all together.

Thanks Mike. I was very careful to not overdo this one, all the pics I have show relatively c"clean" tanks, jsut a bit dusty.

So I was thinking about the tow cables, and I'll be dipped if I didn't make them for an M48, too short. Gotta go digging through the spares boxes.....

Lousy pic, but the 6C is coming along nicely. I want to bring it to ModelFiesta this weekend, so I'm jamming.....

Weathering is VERY restrained, stowage will be limited as well.

Lookin' good, good luck with getting her done in time! And hope you come home with some sort of award for her!

T'anks y'all! It's finished now, but packed up to go to San Antonio tomorrow. I'll get some "finished" pics after. Stowage came out good, nothing fancy.
