Again a Russian beauty on Armorama!
She's great! Love the faded green. Love Helga!

Perhaps 1 Nitpick: perhaps the wooden part of the tool (dutch name is 'pikhouweel', what's the Englisch name again???) on the siding may become a bit darker / weathered.

Lord Kenworth

Good to see the ISU from you. Gotta love the Russian WW2 armor--- its big and beefy,-- kinda like Helga (blush).

Seriously Chaddus, the model has a certain "heft" to it. The tracks look good, as does the hand lettering.

Some light dirt/mud/dust airbrushed on the suspension, lower hull, and glacis areas might be worth a shot, (if you get a chance). Also you might consider a light rust dry brush over some of the worn steel areas, (not completely covering the steel Chaddus), but giving it the look of beginning to oxidize in the elements.

This looks good Chad, and is a good addtion to the "Zod Gallery of Art"

Take Care.

Signed
Kenworth Jr.

Thanks Steve
Helga says hi :-) Hopefully I can do a good job on dirt/mud on it Too afraid I will go overboard on that As far as rust where would some good spoys for rust be? Maybe along the weld beads?

Hiya 'Zod, nice work. Looks good for a build even without all the terrain attached to it. I like it.

Also, exactly where in Minnesota are you? Nice to see a fellow "red" geek in the land of 10,000 lakes...and no sharks. :-)
