Looks nice, great masking idea!

To me (IMHO) the red is too pink, the spare tracks should not be silver, and you need more dots.

But give her a good weathering and all but the dot issue could go away!



Sticky,

my wife said the same about the pinkish red.... i guess it' resulted from bad paint or old paint..anyway i decided to modify the color a bit...

the spare tracks were not painted yet... that's tamiya putty .that i put on them to replicate rusty texture...

thanks for the comments

Hi again...
after the good news that our leader has announced, i feel a lot more relax to finish this campaign and last night i managed to get a few shots .

this is the continuity of my previous progress which can be found here : http://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=SquawkBox&file=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=41441&page=1

Here are some photos of my work so far..

to create hard edge patern, i mask with blue tac and masking tape: the whole masking bussiness took more than 2 hours...






King Tiger after the final color . :
the king tiger will recieve weathering process later







the Tamiya 204 decal was translucent
