Hi John

The feeling of realism is incredible.

The Farmer on the land next to mine had some beat up old machinery that looked a perfect match to your Cat.

Amazing

Simon

J.T., this is really astounding! without a doubt, in the right setting this would be indistinguishable from the real thing. Once again, I'm seriously impressed by your treatment of the tracks, and the exposed framework of the torn seat back is inspired, and...and...and.....

Another splendid bit of work John!
I particularly like the way you weathered-in the panels that you had masked off before priming ( Cat decals, etc).
Wonderful indeed.

Keep up the good work,

Bill

Hi Bill, you noticed that hey? Very Happy Unfortunately the yellow I used to repaint the cat didn't match the original! So I had to fade it from that gold colour to a lemon yellow by airbrushing it with a very light coat of pale green, then the chipping was added to these areas using the sponge technique.

Thanks mate, cheers!

This is simply astounding!! Your control of mediums to achieve a realistic finish is really quite matchless. Well done sir and I look forward to your next masterpiece. Shocked
