At last, I finished this huge kit ! Thanks to the previous comments, I changed the cable of the crane and it looks better now.

Any comments still welcome.






More pics (about 60) on my site (the French part, I'm translating the article for the English part to be updated ASAP).

Very well done Olivier! The rubber skirts look very good. However I would suggest to add some drybrushing with metallic paint on the dozer blade and perhaps the hook. You might have answered this in one of your previous posts, but I missied it: are the cables made of string? If so, you've done a great job drybrushing them.

My IT-28 is also done - I will take some more pictures and post them soon.

Thanks Pavel,
yes the cable is made of string. I stole it to my wife embroidery toolbox :-)8

The rubber skirts are painted handpainted with Tamiay NATO black diluted with water. This gives this worn out aspect.
