Here are some progress photos. I am nearing the point where you add the battle damage. I paint the entire tank to the 'finished' stage, or 'showroom floor' stage, before adding the battle damage. For the best effect, a model should be painted exactly as it would look finished and was not going to have battle damage. If you try to cut corners by skipping stages of painting to get the battle damage in quicker, then the effect will not be nearly as convincing to the viewer's eye.
Hey, I took several more pictures, but they all came out blurry. So, I deleted them, and you will have to wait to see those angles.
Thanks for viewing. As always, your comments are welcome.
