Airfix WWI Female tank

Built as part of a GB at The Airfix tribute Forum. I screwed the steering gear up and decided after several attempts it looked ok without it. Bods from Emhar.
A couple of sepia tone ones for fun
And one from above.

  5. Impressing work. But you can tell the truth. You use real mud out of your garden for the picture, right? ;-)

    The mud is woodglue mixed with sand. To get the "wet" look I have used Darkbrown Acrylic Textil paint...it gives that....well. that "wet" look.
