About ed s. sarao (liberator)
FROM: LUZON, PHILIPPINES

i have been making models since i was a child..on and off..on and off..and just last year i joined the IPMSPHILS-BAC..and proud to be one! meeting old friends and other modellers changed my views..particularly on details and types of weathering. you can say modelling is a never ending process.

Nice job Liberator...Which kit is it ...I just bought the tamiya kit and have cleaned everything else off my bench to start this kit... What color did you use for the yellow? Any problems in the build I should know about? Any details added that weren't in the kit? I know very little about this kit and really want to do my best with it . Any help is appreciated.. Great job sir! Rick

hi there and thanks all, the challenger II was manufactured by tamiya. it was one of the best tank i've ever done. quality and detail wise they set the standards from other brand. no problem with the fit and instructions were all clear. painting was easy. i used TS-46 light sand tamiya plus dark yellow and little washed thinner for weathering. the side skirt were painted with flat khaki and dirty thinner. not included was the gears and stuffs for the crew. in the early released OIF abrams..lots of gears and stuffs were added in the kit..and you can go crazy putting them all over the tank. at least on the challenger they gave us the flasher light on the rear turret..though during OIF..you can't find a good picture of the challenger having this flasher on. i put it on mine anyway. thanks again.
