Hello everyone,
This is the Tamiya Panther D I am building for the Big Cats campaign. I should have the tracks done by the end of the day. I was hoping for some suggestions as to finishing touches to apply before I call her done. I think I will add some fuel stains to the engine deck and maybe some mud splashing on the rear hull and side skirts? Anyway, take a look, tell me what she needs. Thanks

Looks great! Maybe a touch of light rust on the spare tracks and a filter to fade things out?

Well if you are going to dirty up the rear fenders and side skirts then you should dirty up the road wheels. Also make the some of the bearings on the road wheel axles look like they are leaking a little grease. Tone down the brightness of the decals.

There I go again.... Heck its your model do what you want it will be awesome.

Great ideas. I really like the thought of some grease dripping from the bearings. The decals are pretty bright looking at them now. Thank you for your input.
