Lovely job there, the weathering is very real and if this was set in a desert picture would look real.

Having a British 105 gun makes it a mean machine.

foxy :coolio:

Thx for your kindest comment, the truth is that it is thought to make a final picture with what he says, but did not find any background that would fit well, and have tried a bit with Photoshop, but not quite like it and left.

Perhaps with more time could make a nice montage

Cheers foxy :thumbsup:

OUTSTANDING....:wow::yikes::wub:

 

Blooming IMPRESSIVE  and stands out  beautifully.

Very REAL and I did think it looked like a 1:1 scale ...thinking it's never a model.

 

It's ASTOUNDING Workmanship. Very VERY GOOD!

 

KUDOS ..:mike::mike:

Many thanks for your like and more than kind comments, i'm glad you like it, maybe the photos are something "magical", although they are not retouched, if cut, I made them with a reflex camera, and that's what Michael Franks said in a song ... "The Camera never lies" ... lol.
Now that I have been with the hobby for some time, I see that I could have done something different and if it is possible to improve it as much as possible, maybe a more aggressive weathering ...

 

Perhaps, although very different, you can appreciate differences in this model and the Panther, which is the last one that I have "retouched", since there is a difference of at least one year or more possibly between one and the other.

 

Cheers Houston :yes:
