1/48 Tamiya Elefant

Postby Greg R » Mon Apr 16, 2018 10:12 pm

Built OOB using the Zimmerit sticker set available as an add on.

Gunze paints with AK & Vallejo weathering. I used some Wilder textured earth for the first time and I really like how it goes on and stays put.

Wasn't too sure how the zimmerit stickers would go. I was a bit worried they'd peel after a while and lift off if any washes etc got under them but apart from a few tiny spots around some sharp bends it was fine and they went back down with tiny dab of superglue.

Looks really nice Greg.

It's always good to see some 48 scale armour.. it 's under appreciated IMHO
