What would Daisy Duke say?

Why has no one ever done this before? This is an M3 Lee Medium tank. Called the Lee after General Lee. the same name the Dukes car has.

It had to be done, didn't it?

What would Tony Hart say?

I dug this out of my bits box and thought I'd post it here. It was an experiment I tried on a few models with different colours, quite a while ago now. I was just trying different things, seeing what effects I could get.
This was a brown model (Swedish tank), and I basically got a bucket of water, sprayed some yellow and green in the water, which automatically stayed on the surface, and then dipped the tank in the water.
The paint sticks to the surface of the tank. It's like marbelling with aerosols.
The paint is a bit stringy, but if you use a toothbrush or similar you can brush the bits into all the grooves, or just leave it dangling for a swampy look.

What would General Patton say?

I've been hunting around for a Military Modelling site to join.
My tastes are simple, I just want some intersting articles to read, a nice gallery and a friendly forum with posts showing pictures of models.
I guess what we'd all say we're after.
I looked at the really big sites, but settled in the end with a relatively small and new site: Model Armour!

There's a great bunch of modellers there at all levels. I've been a member for a couple of weeks and already learned a huge amount.
