Brilliant! 8)

Awesomely fantastic, even! :D

The colours give it a sci-fi edginess that suits the overall look of the Merkava & your advanced gun-system barrel perfectly. :smiley:

Thanks guys

I will finish this off and post pics but this won't be for a while. I don't have much left to do, but my time is being directed elsewhere (my Star Destroyer)

There is nothing about this that I don't find beautiful.  All-around amazing, inspirational, even.  Thanks for sharing it with us.

Well tidy indeed!

I really like the paintwork. That would turn heads at any show!

Great stuff.

Amazing! The masking alone must have taken hours.

cheers guys

I haven't finished it yet, but there isn't much left to do. I really should just get it done and dusted, so I'll get into it again when I get back from holidays

To start with, the masking was easy to do as I had some vinyl masks that I had bought ages ago and never found a use for until this. They were OK, but became pretty useless after the 2nd colour so I had to make my own ones after that
