Crusader III final images.

This model was done withing the Tamiya group build at 1/48 discussion group.  I started it before the vacation and the assembly was finished within 2 hours :) Then it took some time to paint it and weather appropriately and then I changed the light set-up. Now I am happy with images I got and would like to share the results with visitors of my blog. 

I would like to thank Josh Emery for help with the kit, Mike Starmer for explanation of disruptive scheme and proper colours and quarterscale fellows from
ps. the woodgrain is a decal from Alex, better known as Uschi van der Rosten.

Advance on Zrinyi II.

I am almost done with my Zrinyi II. As you can see from these 2 images I reworked the original kit a bit - removed front mud flaps and detailed the sprocket area, scratched spare track holder, tool clamps, tow cable holders and hooks for mesh screens. Also the battle damage as per reference images is replicated - torn mesh screen, distorted hooks, torn support roller. The more I work on that one the more I like it. 

Hope to get some paint on it during the weekend!
