That looks great Doug - neat job on the swastika - was that by hand?
What type of tissue - just normal supermarket type?- looks fairly smooth with paint on from that distance.
Cheers

PS Nice weathering too - reckon the Pz 38 need s little bit of that

Hi All,

Thanks for your comments.

The Pz 38(t) will get dusted up but I want to complete the other 1940 France Vehicles I have first so I ca treat them all at once 😊.

I like the 1940 two tone gray/brown scheme gets away from the plain grey employed later. Problem was the colours were very similar and once a layer of dust covered the tank the colours were often indistinguishable as can be seen from actual pictures.

Re the recognition flags they do look cool.

Cheers!

Hi TT, yes, the swastika was done by hand, and the tissue was just a single ply cut from a supermarket tissue pack, I was hoping to get a little of the texture, but it has come out quite smooth. I suggest you cut the size, drape approximately in position, then dab the watered own PVA on, or it is really easy to tear. I just liked the way it was nice and thin, like real fabric.

I've also been told that of course the PzIV should be grey and brown, but I like it grey :D
