What A Difference Paint Chipping Makes
After adding paint chips to the tank I took a look at it and knew it was done. I know that adding streaking grim and rust would have added to the model, but still I stopped working on the model. This was just one of those moments where I had to stop fiddling in order to preserve the paint job already on the vehicle. More work is coming, but that has to wait until I figure out what kind of additional stowage to add.
The next step in this model's life is a display base. Once that is in place and the model is grounded, plan to look at what kind of stowage I can add to the model and to the base in order to tie them together and make a more interesting scene. This is not meant to be a diorama though, so I need to be careful to not veer too much in that direction. It is tempting to add a group of SS walking alongside the tank wearing their splinter pattern camouflage jackets. I know the tank deserves the spotlight here, but it really looks to me like a background piece.
