After heavy inspiration from RTR's Ajax Squadrons Urban Camo (Berlin Brigade Reboot), and a sense of right of passage in doing this scheme, here is the WIP thread for this multi-coloured Trumpeter (KFOR Kit) Challenger 2: 

This is my third model and my second challenger (Please do take the time to check the others out) I have to give a special thanks to @Simon Chong for the best inspiration, @Widow 65 for some brilliant first hand experience and therefore great detail advisor and to @ERK , @Stef N. , @SoftScience , @ivan-o , @vytautas for great encouragement and lots of useful advice and all that good stuff. Special thanks to @diablo rsv for the further inspiration quality wise, with his MK.10 Chieftain in berlin camo, and his help with finding products that made this project what it is.

 

But you are all here to see the RFI final pics so I wont delay further! Please comment feedback and be harsh(!) as I'd like to make progress between this model and the RFM TES which is next! That said positive feedback is also welcome :)

That's really interesting looking, and it was great to follow along on your WIP. 

Now please put it in a secure location! :) 

 

 

it would be a shame if this nice looking model got damaged

Thank you so much! Hopefully I'll continue the CR2 WIP page with the TES. Going to take a short break from modelling for now though with AOSB Main fast approaching. 

 

Certainly will be avidly following your build! 

 

Thanks again :)

Nice work.  I've long fancied the Berlin scheme but it's way beyond my abilities.  Masking and me don't play well together.

 

I wonder if that particular one will end up as a Chally 3 or as a range target?

You did really well, the tank looks great! And camo got very well, despite that being, in my opinion, the most complicated scheme. An impressive result, congratulations!

Thank you. I thought the same, but with some time and decent tape doing most of the work (18mm Tamiya), it came out pretty good for my first masking scheme. ID urge you give it a go as it was great fun. 

 

Very good question...

Lovely job that you've done there. The build, paintwork and weathering are excellent. Nice one.

You should be really pleased with the way that turned out, it looks really good.

It's been great following your WIP on this build. Looking forward to the next one.

Thank you so much Wayne, your help has been so useful. Still looking up to your builds as inspiration. May be some time before my next one but looking forward to doing it when I start it. See you then 👍
