Another golden oldie from Tamiya. I used this to practice my weathering especially rusting.

Another stunner from you, Paddy, really top painting and weathering. These old Tamiya kits can look the business when they are painted proper, like :grin:

Nice work on a venerable Tamiya kit. That rust and wear and tear looks amazing.

That's really great. I love the heavy worn look. A real veteran.
