PLA ZTZ -99A 

I'll be painting this next for a group build. its a great kit from Panda. 
 
E100 Jadg. 
 A new model finished, this one took some time because its huge. E-100 Jadg with a huge gun, what else can I say? Its not real. This type of thing is harder to model, trying to make it convincing is a challenge. You don't want it to be far out there but you want to express a little.

 AFV Club/Def Models. 


M60
 
Been planing a Slick 60 forever and Def sent me the upgrade kit 2 years ago. I started to do it with the Tamiya kit and along came the AFV Club kit and it is by far one of AFV Club's best. The detail they have been producing lately is exceptional. the turret and resin detail is Def the PE is Def models. the wheels are from the kit just primed. the tracks are a separate offer from AFV Club (they should include those if they want to compete with Meng). Def and Legends make up most of the stored gear.

I like to lay down a little dust to start the dirt work. I use several earth tones with varying degree of viscosity to leave a layered effect. Next I'll use hair spray to create spots.

Leopard 2A5DK.
 Just finished the build portion of this model. Its a Danish Leopard 2A5 with EX upgrades, some of the upgrades that will be included in the new Leopard 2A7. I received the Danish Conversion set from Accurate Armour for the Hobby Boss kit and started in on the build. Then decided to to use the Tamiya kit with parts from Hobby Boss, and a few parts from the new Meng Leo.
