Meng M4A3 Thunderbolt VI

Not sure what to think about this one. Build OOB, only added aftermarket are Friul tracks and chains and barbed wire. Stowage is homemade.
Had problems with clear matt coat, will try to correct it with cellulose thinner and some pigments. Yeah, and add an antenna.

Looks great to me. I see no issues w/the matt coat. Great job.

Issues? If I built that I’d throw away all my tools and consider myself as having reached perfection!

There are quite a few little flints that got stuck while spraying Ammo matt coat but I think I will be able to dissolve them by gently dabbing them with cellulose thinner. Before that coat I sprayed AK matt coat but the result was more satin

That looks fantastic! The weathering is wonderful. I wouldn’t touch it.

Couldn’t agree more with all the positive comments :+1: Really great weathering that mirrors perfectly ETO tanks from winter/spring '45. A bit of slickness in the finish looks like it’s come from a wet and muddy environment, and the little flecks you describe just look like small mud clumps at the resolution of the photos you posted, so perfect :clap:.
