The weathering is amazing.  What did you use for the antenna?  It really looks great.

I'd love to hear your recipe for mud, too. Got a bunch of trucks that need to be less pristine than they are!

It's an utterly fantastic modelling and painting job, and the attention to detail on the weathering is as good as anything I've seen. Congratulations.

Being picky, I can't help wondering if you've almost taken it too far - that thing looks so rusty and corroding that you'd wonder if it could even move! Did tankies (of any nationality) ever really let their beloved armoured homes get into quite such a decaying, derelict state?

It does look totally fab though. I'm just curious to know if things ever got this bad on operational armour. I can't believe a senior NCO wouldn't have come round with a wire brush and pot of paint and ordered the crew in question to sort it out!  ;)

Great work Neil.

You would think that with so many crew manning the vehicle they could keep it clean!

The weathering is just awe inspiring. So realistic.  :o
