Well done as much as I can manage. Clearly so much more possible when looking at the workmanship here - and so, so much more to aim for. Thanks to all for the inspiration and the friendly forum. Lu, Pat: thanks too for the opportunity to play. Don't know how these pics will look on your monitor but here goes...

And a little Warren Zevon always helps! Thanks for looking. Cheers, Ralph.

A beautiful looking model that I have been following throughout the build...however I feel that the basing has really let it down. The vehicle doesn't show any weight on the ground it is placed on...almost as though it is floating there. Perhaps it isn't done.

Please don't take this the wrong way, as you have done a fantastic job on the kit...just a little work needed to make the base and the vehicle meld together.

Hi Ralph?

I can´t believe it. So non US subject from you for the GB???

Great work on your three beauties. All of them inspiring indeed!

Regards!
Alvaro

PS If you accept it, another constructive comment from here: the wheatering on the front wheels -that I love, BTW, and I will follow for my tiny Schwimm- does not match the wheatering on the tracks (or vice-versa!

Hello Rob: yes - I see what you mean. Perhaps I can channel out some of the base to allow the model to sit more "deeply" into the groundwork. Almost begs the question of allowing the rear of the vehicle to sit down a little too. Alvaro's comments suggest an opportunity to revisit the running gear weathering. Bases - models in themselves, and an all-new adventure. Cheers, Ralph.

Hello Alvaro: yes - always keen to hear ideas and suggestions, as I know very little about armour subjects and their surroundings. I see what you mean about the mis-matched running gear weathering. I'm still trying to understand the many weathering materials and application techniques - maybe I'm running too fast and need to look at some period photos to help balance my results. Thanks too for the pointer about aftermarket turned metal poles - I will try to find some. Cheers, Ralph.

G'day Ralph.
I've really enjoyed following your build up and paint of your 251. It looks just great
the colours and the weathering look supurb to my eye.
Regards to you my friend.
Alan.

Nice close up! Superb chipping! A really atractive finish!
