Very nice Leon as always.

Beautiful work Leon!
How did you make the antenna?

A small length of plastruct plastic square, cut at the correct angle, drilled a hole and used the traditional nylon filament from a brush. They great because they dont break or kink ( and if they do easy to straighten again).
Only problem is that SWMBO complains about the bald patches in her brushes…………….I tell her its defective manufacture…………..
Width indicators are 'butterfly' pins, they made of high tnsile steel with a plastic ball moulded on.

Hand painted?

Captain Cold,
Airbrushed, with a Iwata B + using Life colour paints.

Thanks Leon!
SWMBO may question if I pinch filaments from her brush. I like your response. I'll have to buy one at the local dollar store.

Leon, really nice work. I love seeing your AFVs as you weather them subtly, without that "on the last journey to the scrap yard" that I often see. I really must order some of your figures – I am not showing enough support for your efforts

Thanks for sharing

Very nice . A good example of what can be achieved with an Air Brush. I still dislike the things ! :)

mysteron, I do know how you feel about airbrushes but as someone said in another thread you do get better with practise/familarity with the things.

That is true . However my main scales for WW2 are 15mm and 20mm and can get good results without the use of an Air Brush.

Butterfly pins?

Google "insect pins". Used by those that collect and display dead insects etc.

Man, one of these days you and Piers need to throw down on a game, Leon.

There's probably not enough awesome on the internet to support pictures of it, though… evil grin
