Gary,
Oustanding IDF M-60. Your attention to detail in the weathering process brings out all the subtle aspects of this vehicle. I am particularly impressed with the tarp on the turret bustle rack. As for the crewman, your painting of his face absolutely makes him come to life. All in all an excellent job.

Thanks chaps for the kind words. It was a really enjoyable build and made a refreshing change from the usual tri-colour camo and black crosses AFVs!

Jaymes - YES I entered it in the August MOTM...and I was astounded when it won against some very stiff competition. I rec'd a super DML 1/35 Stug IV "Smart Kit" from the Armorama staff which was a very kind and welcome gesture.

Best regards and thanks.
Gary
