Your wallpaper looks suspiciously like the Blue Ridge Smile

Agreed. All too often modellers overdo the sag on the top run. With their level of sag the tracks would jump the sprocket.
At a recent Bovington Tankfest the Royal Jordanian Army fielded a PzIV with tracks like knicker elastic, the thing only just made it around the arena.

Hiya Zod:

I always go by the concept that there is no such thing as over done. And there is no such thing as underdone Wink . It is all about what YOU like. Personally I think most things like track sag, bent fenders, vehicles loaded with stowage is over done. But I also have to say that I really like the effect people get when they build a model with sagging tracks, bashed up/missing fenders, and half a ton of stowage What a Face . Usually I like to go to google and just look at as many pics as I can to see what was "average" when I do those things to a vehicle.But right now, yours looks very nice.

Thanks Gary. Smile

Just a quick pic. I am going with the gray scheme. There are no decals for the blue triangles on the lower hull area. If I thought I could do them well,I would.

Sorry for lack of updates. I finally got around to doing some more work on her. I got the wash on earlier.

Going great Zod! Are the decals iridescent? it could just be the lighting in these pics but it looks pretty sweet.

Thanks John.
I had to look iridescent up. I guess it must be the lighting. Very Happy

Hiya Zod:

That is a nice looking StuG F8. And I may be wrong butt if I remember correctly Suspect the famed Whermacht Hippo Butt division was experimenting with night fighting before the introduction of the Infra red equipment. And they used the irridescent glow in the dark markings to be able to see the other vehicles of the unit Wink .
