A39 TORTOISE

BRITISH HEAVY ASSAULT TANK

Meng 1/35

Hi Guys,

I built Meng's fantastic Tortoise in June 2014. It was a great kit to work on from beginning to end and Meng have definitely become one of my favorite manufacturers. A few modifications were made to the kit to bring it closer to how a production model may have appeared. The stowage bundle on the back was made from scraps of balsa stuck together and covered with lead foil. I use hairspray for the winter whitewash and the figure came from a MiniArt set.

Hope you enjoy the shots (new photos on page 2)

That looks great. Really like the rust effect on the last image, is it an exhaust?

Sorry for the double post, why are ipads so utterly useless!

Thanks for the kind words everyone

Yep, it's the exhaust. It was textured with Vallejo putty stippled on then sprayed green and given some rust washes

Amazing, makes me shiver with cold just looking at it! If someone told me that exhaust was a real piece of rusty metal I'd believe them. Outstanding stuff.
