no need to rush and by the time I finish it'll probably be close to tax time so get my return and go for another one 8-) :D :D

Are you using masking tape or masking fluid?

for the Ratte? , I'm using 3M Blue painters tape - it's low tack and sit's nicely with no bleeding under it.
I did consider silly putty for the mask and a more tank like curvy/blobby camo scheme but decided I wanted a more warship type scheme.

It looks great, it's a shame it's so big you can't make a little diaorama type deal for it to sit on, make it look like it's really in the battlefield

A small simple diorama base would be around 30cm by 50cm :( , I would have liked to have done a crew figure with it but there's like only 2 different Russian ww2 tanker figures in 1/16 (120mm) and their bloody impossible to find :(
The next one I'm doing will be a German , either a Panther G or a PZ-IV-J and there's all sorts of figures for those including whole crews.
