A superb job  :)

Looks like I may have to scratch build a couple of 5T Holt Tractors for my WW1 collection so this has given me food for thought  lol

No James it right.( he's a grown up model maker by day too.)

What he really wanted to say is- what a load of bovine effluent. It's just a cylinder on top of a box it didn't nearly need half that time.
And he's right .
The only grown up bit of model engineering is hidden in plain sight.
I spent the majority of the afternoon drinking tea sat in the garden enjoying the peace waiting for paint to dry.
There's no real reason you can't knock up a basic card sub and have it game ready in two and a half hours, if you keep the paint as simple as the first pictures.(if you use a hair dryer on the paint)
This one is undercoated grey and shaded there's no actual painting other than the dark grey camo panels.
The waters just two neat inks with white paint drawn through each ink then left to dry.

Mark.

HAHAHA!!!!!!...I love THAT statement!!!!!
I do however, like the simplicity of the design...and MAY try my own take on it BECAUSE of the size....and I really need to try one of those camo paint jobs on my next venture into the seas of pulp!
Cheers,
Carl
