I decided this needed to be re-painted/weathered because the original did not meet my new standards. I didn't remove the old paint or pigments and just applied over the old stuff, kind of gave it a textured look. Mostly, since this original was my first build/paint, 5 years ago, back into the hobby, you learn as you go along.

As, new photos came along that showed some of the camo better so I was able to improve on that...

Hi
Very impressive job all round. I love the grass effect. It all looks the biz.

Cheers

Hi Ron,
Great work and how I love these Kursk Tigers!

My question is whether you have a list of the features of this vehicle and (perhaps rather cheekily but if you don't ask you don't get) any other Kursk Tigers you are familiar with? Hi

I know you have modelled a number of them over the years, but unfortunately I have not been able to save your posts with the relevant info.

Do you keep a spreadsheet or anything similar?

If you might drop me a line at njmayhew AT gmail .com I would be very grateful.
Kind regards

Nick
Regards,

Nicholas

Excelent work.
In my opinion the flag is a point to improve.....maybe the tracks spare with a little of dust.
