Here is my Swedish "S"-C. I thought I had better get off of my butt and get it built. I started this at 11am on Tuesday the 15th and it is now 9:53 pm Saturday evening the 19th and it is pretty much done. Maybe some minor weathering here and there, but that is about it. I didn't like the colors on the box, so I opted for my own mix of pale green, Italian kahki green, red earth brown and RLM 66 Black grey for the colors. There are a couple of small parts that go on the sides over the water barrier erection poles, but I can't figure out just how they are supposed to go, so I left them off. It doesn't sit exactly square on the tracks, but nothing a nice earthen base won't fix Now I can start on the next "Have to do!" kit. :-) :-) Comments welcome. "Q"

Nice work REd4

Weathering looks good, the details pop out nicely.
The camouflage is very effective, which makes this beast look like she ran away from the set of Aliens 5.


Good job on a not so often seen subject!


if possible I'd like to see a frontal picture at eyelevel.

Its a very nice model superbly built not to mention the paintwork. The faded tones seems a little inspired by WWII german armour though.

I didn't fade anything. Those are the natural colors of what I used. I plan to do another one using the "B" kit instead. That one will more than likely be a one color beast. Thanks for the kind words all. "Q"

Beautiful S-tank!!! But where did you get the inspiration for the camo?! It looks very nice, but not like any of the 103:s I've seen before!!

Polar, I looked at what was on the box top/ instructions and just changed my colors and the pattern a bit. Glad you like it. "Q"
