Hi folks,
here's my M3A1 Lee by Takom. Built OOB, painted and weathered with Ammo and Valejo stuff. The model builds great without too many problems. I didn't want to scratch it or rust it, just cover it with dust. There's a silvering on rear left decal that I am aware of which can easily be hidden by some more dust. Also, 3 tiny bits dissapeared during weathering...
All comments and critics are welcome.

Yes, the tracks were a bit problematic. They are link and length type and drove me nuts while putting them on, seemed like they were a bit too short. Then again, maybe it was my fault. Anyway, I had to superglue some individual links (with more or less success)

Hi!

I LIKE your restrained weathering! Far too many modelers "over-do" the weathering to the point where their subject has become unrecognizable. I can look at your Lee and know instantly that this is a model of an M3A1-type...


VERY NICE WORK!!!
