EFTC Cont. Part 5

Ok just a quick update, but with lots of pictures. I finished doing all the masking on the turrets so that the four tanks could finally have their coat of Knarloc Green sprayed over them. So here are some pictures of the tanks with their appropriate turret added to them. Now I couldn't actually put the turrets in place properly because of the masking tape, but you get the idea.

So looking good and ready for spraying. I've had to spray the tanks in batches, so I've only managed to get two fully done so far. I have also done the other turrets but have no pics, sorry. I think that the camo has come out really well on these tanks and they already look a million times better than they did before. I am however going to have to do some touch up work with the brush where there was some paint bleeding. Oh and the final photo is without the flash on so as to get an idea of the colours in more natural light.

Comments and suggestions are always appreciated. Thanks for viewing.

Excellent job mate, it's a nice mute colour scheme. I notice you're from Stoke, I used to live in Newcastle - small world.

They are coming along nicely. I wasn't sure about the smaller blotch pattern at first, but it looks good with the tape off.

I'm with Kevin.

Less so with Corbane; though I did have some nice tapas in Newcastle over Easter...

Do you have a nuclear powered flash? Those colours are completely different in real light!

@ Kevin & Drax - I wasn't too sure about the blotch pattern straight away, for once I just went with something and now I'm glad with how it turned out.

@ Drax - the pics were taken with my phone, but yeah the flash is a bit much. My last camera phone, the flash used to just blank the lens so you ended up with a white picture.

Cheers for the comments guys, I hope to have the other 2 tanks done by tomorrow.
