Takom's wonder finished. Right after uploading pictures I realized that I have left masks on all periscopes and visors. Well, I'll tend to it tonight. Here we go with AMX-13/75 in 2eme REC (Regiment Etranger de Cavalerie) somewhere near Port Fouad (opposite to Port Said, across the Suez Canal) just after cease fire on November 7, 1956. For those interested, by far, the best analysis of this 'defeat snatched from the jaws of victory' is available at (https://www.globalsecurity.org/military/library/report/1984/RRW.htm)
As to the model, I enjoyed it a lot. I have a lot to learn in the tank production department as the less than stellar track job on the sagging of left side. I used Hataka Jaune Sahara (later blended with light tan RLM69 and white (1 rlm69+3 parts white) becasue HTK-A121 is unsprayable and pigment separates ... straight from the bottle. Washed with UMP light sand and mud washes, drybrushed with medium grey and light grey. Some discolorations provided with medium earth oil and then many spots and most crevices heavily handled with Tamiya panel accent. I am true believer in a 'tripartite' in modelling now: at least one aircraft, one vehicle and one ... submarine (well surface combatant would do :)) at the bench at once :)

Like it? It's brilliant! The colours and the weathering look superb and the detail in the kit parts looks nice and sharp.
Excellent job!

Which is why stepping back and taking, and then studying, photos of your (supposedly) finished work is the best critique you might ever get. The camera is not viewing it through loving eyes ....

Well done on the model, BTW

Absolutely well said. Being in a hurry, regardless of reasons, has kicked me before many times :).

Very nice Marek, your weathering looks totally convincing. Excellent photography too. I like your 'tripartite modelling' idea to keep things fresh.

Super build Marek. That weathering really brings the subject alive and of course it helps that the AMX-13 is such a good looking tank. :lol:
