My latest Leopard, Leopards on the side is A theme for me,this one started as exercise in paint I swapped the tan in the camo for yellow that is also used on vehicles in the Greek army, so its not far of reality. The kit is from Hobby Boss with bits from Perfect Scale,Bronco, Eduard and RB models.

This is the real thing mucking about.

Hi Chris

Another brilliant bit of modern armour weathering from you, along with it being a great build too. The scratches and worn off paint are so well done!

Best regards

Alex

That is some amazing mud work... the muck and crud you've replicated is perfect. Not to mention a great job on the basic camo colors.

Great work Chris,

Very nice work on the cam pattern and superb job on the weathering. The build up of mud on the suspension looks great.

What are you using for the water streaks?

Thanks Jason,the water and wet spots are made using AK Interactive wet effects I also use Tamiya clear colors. To make this effective you need to layer. Also when you apply it over dust it gives better contrast.
