Shawn, Joe, Andre: all very nicely done!
I've gotta look at the start/end dates, I'm getting the urge again.

Thanks for all the great comments.
The camo is inspired by some articles that say that the early German Panzers were painted in dark Gray and Dark Brown camo with the Brown camo covering at least 30%.

Time to call my contribution done!

Leopard 2A6 in Ukranian service, imagined in action against the ruskies.

Great build, Vegard!

Very clean weathering, but good looking none the less.

@Jesper Thanks! The weathering is minimal, but most of it is actually hidden behind the slat armor. A bit of a miss on my part there.

@Andre That poor thing. I'd be amazed if that robot would even work after being exposed to that much wear.

:D :D Do you think that I exaggerated on weathering? I supposed that in a war near north pole the repair service will be very difficult. What do you think?

Andre and Vegard, that is the beauty of this hobby. One can make everything from factory clean vehicles to beaten up old dirty veteran vehicles. Both builds look great, but with different stories and backgrounds to them.

Thanks Jasper but do you think that I over-weathered the robot?
Cheers I liked the leopard with RWS.

Hell no. Unless you are replicating a model from a specific photo or video, I believe you can weather your own model to whatever standard you want.

Regarding the 2A6M build...can I ask why the loader's hatch is mounted upside down on the commander's cupola and why the commander's hatch is on the loader's hole?

My suggestion for a bit of further finishing would be to add the commonly seen recognition stripes on the hull and turret. Even with the slat armour you could still do that. I think it would break up the single colour look and lend itself a bit more to the background story.

@jason Yeah, the hatch is upside down, but in their right cupolas according to the instructions.

I considered painting white stripes, but I was fed up with the build and my white paint had dried up.

Ha! Yeah, it's a hobby, not work, so do it as long as it's fun, then move on! I totally agree.

The important thing is to have fun. As Sean points out, it is a hobby and should be fun

We are getting closer to the end of this campaign. Has anybody planned for a ribbon?
