Hi everyone, Okay, I haven't built armor for a very loooong time. I was 12 years old when I built the Tamiya 1/35 Flakpanzer Gepard and I'm 41 now....so, things have changed tremendously, to say least, since then. There was lot of firsts for me on this build: 1) First 1/48 armor build 2) First use of Flory washes 3) First use of Vallejo washes 4) First figures - ever - watched lots of YouTube video's to get an idea of what to do. 5) First use of resin - Blackdog bags and accessories set for Sd.Kfz 250/3 In the end, all that counts is that I had tremendous fun building this little gem of a kit and doing all the research for one of Rommel's favorite vehicles, so much so that I bought the Tamiya 1/48 Tiger 1 "Early Production" kit half way through this build. I tried to weather the areas around the sides differently because it was clear in the "Bundesarchiv" pictures that this was the area that received the most "traffic"....I guess the soldiers would jump up on the sides to get into it and never use the door! I used a mixture of paint brands - Tamiya, Vallejo and Model Master. The matte coat is MM. Please criticize away, I still need to learn a lot.
