Very good work, especially on the dozer blade.

Always loved engineer & recovery vehicles for some reason and yours is no exception. Nice to see it this colour as NATO colours are too obvious & overdone. Love the dozer blade though I think that the tracks are too clean. Picky Picky, I know, but it is about feedback.

Very interesting work, especially for me, since I'm also a fan of modern technology)
     Tracks stands out for its novelty, especially against the background of the dozer blade, but who prevents putting new tracks on the machine)?
     I liked the side tool boxes, did you use the black microfiller or something like that (paneliner)? What did you use for optics? The result is also excellent.
     Of course, the tricolor camouflage of NATO hides all the details on the machine (although for this purpose it was created), but I did not see a similar color solution on German stuff ... Do you have reference photos? I will be grateful, as I am building Dachs myself at the moment.
     Overall impression of the model is very positive. Keep it up!

Hi Belyaev
Thanks for the reply
The “paneliner” is the normal balck wash technique using TAMIYA enamel XF 1.
I used green laser stickers from HASEGAWA for the optics.
About the reference,the TANKOGRAD book No.5031 helped a lot, which inclued lots of German ISAF vehicles in desert camouflage.
The tracks are really a failure, I’ll try harder next time

Thanks for answers! I meant you didn't use ready-for-use washes. Tankograd book may be useful.
