Even in the last month I was going through some storage boxes and found several partially finished projects from the 1990s, mostly racing cars.....

Actually, the Mk IV that I just posted the photo of was a donor kit for a different project that I never really worked on. I intended to use the tracks and wheels from the Panzer on an Italeri 1/24 Opel Blitz truck to convert it into a Maultier halftrack. Nothing ever came of that project so the tank is now assembled! ;) I will even build the Blitz one day I reckon......

Now the Mk. IV has the same base colors as the Tiger and is ready for the next step, oil washes. Once the oils are applied I will be at the same stage as the other tank and will start with pastels on the IV. Hopefully my learning curve will be easy and I can then transfer my new knowledge to the Tiger.....

Thanks, mate! It is really more of a "test subject" for weathering the big machine...... ;)

Still experimenting, working with both oils and pastels to gain knowledge. I'm still not ready to transfer to the Tiger yet......

Good work with oils, Scott. For pastels, don't hesitate to use pastels that are more contrasted. See my Mirage: I used sand pastel for the dark brown as an example...

Three years and a month later, the Mk. IV is done, ready for weathering. Second round of practice before I start to work on the Tiger.
