Shalom.

This is looking better and better all the time.

Where'd you get the Hebrew lettering on the ammo box on the .50 cal mg?

Cheers

Sorry to be late with this update. I have done some weathering. I have added some stains, chipping, and dust. Next will be the commander and some stowage. Here are some updated pictures and thanks for looking. Comments are welcome.

She looks ready to do battle. Very, very nice. A lot of interesting effects and details there. I particularilly like the dust that has collected in the chevrons of the spare track links.

Yes sand can get into even the tiniest of spaces. Some writers who were in the WW2 NA Campaign said that at times vehicles and equipment appeared to be white because of the coating of ultra-fine dust covering everything. I really like your model and the Hebre lettering on the ammo box is a superb touch.

I have been working on the stowage items trying different arrangements. I want the tank to look lived in, but I don't want to cover it up. Here are some pictures to see what you think. Nothing is tied down yet.

Shalom.

This is looking better and better as it progresses. I really like the wood effects on that piece of wood on the rear that's holding the tarps in place.

What are you going to use to tie the items in place? If string, be sure to treat it so that there are no fibrous hairs sticking out. I have some fine white nylon crochet thread that's ideal for 1/35 scale rope.

Always interested in seeing your updates and progress.

Cheers.

Hi Capt:

The stowage looks good. Maybe a few smaller bags and rolls amongst the other bigger pieces. But it all looks good just as it is also .

I've been working on the stowage today and have it pretty much done. I also added the TC. I may add a few more things before finishing this build. Here are some new pic's.
