That is super impressive! I tried this idea on a synthetic rifle stock once and it didn't turn out this good. Reverse engineering this paint scheme back in 2001 was kinda fun lol.

Looks awesome Rob! Though I want to pull out a box of checkers now!!! 

Did you use the Tamiya paint for everything? I've got a ZTZ-99 with digital camo that I'm going to have to mask eventually. 

 

 

 

 

there are some nice kits with digital schemes as an option and some that just lend themselves for a what if... paint was all AK Interactive (over Ammo One Shot Primer) - am not a fan of Tamiya paint purely for the smell ;-)

 

 

 

Thanks!!! Though I meant to ask if you used Tamiya TAPE for all your masking- don't know why I typed PAINT- brain fart... sigh... 

My paint set is AK Interactive so it's good to know at least it will do the job- thanks again! 

 

 

 

ah yes - in that case YES i used Tamiya Tape for all of it

and she is uncovered.... sadly pleased with how this turned out (photos are a little browner than the actual thing) - only 1 part needs to be touched up and that is a small part where the paint lifted off the PE grill. Next up I will do the red/white markings on the side skirt (a la Matilda).

   Looking really good, excited to see the finished product.

 

getting there... Silver grey now added.... all masked up for final Portland Stone and reveal tomorrow... thinking of masking white & red stripes on the front (a la Matilda) and using one of the name decals from the Tamiya kit to give it that "what if the British Army had Terminators and a war in the desert)...

thanks all.... have thought that as this is a what-if scheme I am going with a British Army unit in the desert circa 2020 - so they decided the Caunter colours were good for pixel scheme but harking back to WWII used some of their markings (so will use some Matilda decals - or make my own)....

The Tamiya tape looks like it stick much better, should give you a nice hard edge camo. Can't wait to see the camo done!

changed it... switched to tamiya tape (1cm)... big parts are 5mm x 5mm and then a few smaller 2mm x 2mm... squares are bigger but think this is better (especially in terms of sticking to the kit - vinyl just wasnt adhering

Very nice work on the paint, I don’t envy you doing the digital camouflage.   
 

 

masking started... first round of the pixel masking applied - not sticking very well so likely to be soft edged.... next colour will be slate grey...
