I must say that I just love this type of camouflage!

I've seen a picture, where a simular tank is standing in front of a building in Berlin, and you can hardly see it.

Very good work!

Thanks all.
Reckon my next armour kit will be painted a single solid colour after this laborious scheme! :)
This type of camo was quite effective apparently. I believe this might be the photo you're referring to, Swede?

All done. I tried to keep the weathering quite subtle, using my usual black, brown, and white oil paint washes heavily thinned with artists spirit over a gloss coat. Once weathered, I added a few coats of Vallejo matt to flatten the sheen and bring everything together.
Aerials made from fine musical wire, and some odds and ends added to the baskets. Technically there should be an orange safety light on a pole on top of the cab for road use, but I'm taking the line that this was removed when the cold war went hot :lol:
I'm fairly pleased with the result given the age of the kit. I don't think I'll take on another highly complex scheme like this one again soon!
