Now that I've photographed it I've seen one or two things that I might tweak, otherwise it's pretty much as done as it will ever be.

Looks great, but those tow cables look way out of scale.

Nice T1 Paul. Is that the initial camo used in Tunisia?

A couple of things to ponder:-

1. The images on my monitor are about 3-4 times larger than the model, the cables appear heavily emphasised (it's also punishing on the finished model!).

2. The cables are moulded as thinly as I would guess practicable in this scale.

I've got a Dragon kit where the cable is provided as stranded wire with separate moulded eyelets, this is probably a lot more scalish. Also I have an Ace Centurion kit where they supply cables as moulded vinyl, not bad in principle but it leaves you with flash to remove.

That's the idea, 'pea green' according to eyewitness accounts. I used Tamiya X58 which is the recommendation from one reference I found. The instructions quote 813 as belonging to the 'Kampfgruppe Lang', Panzer Regiment 7, 10.PzDiv,Maknassy Pass, 1943.

After a bit of consideration I decided the top of the tank looked too clean compared with the lower hull, so I've dusted it up a bit. It really needs a base now.
