Beautifully done! My only addition would be some serious dust all over it and a sweaty tanker sticking his head out of a hatch. Just me. Looking forward to seeing more of your work!

Thank you. I kept dusting to a minimal at the lower hull, since I tend to get carried away and overdo it most of the times. And figures are also something I need to improve, since my first attempts proved quite horrible.

Great job Nikos! I was wondering what paint you used on this and your other IDF build?

Thank you. The Magach 6A was painted with vallejo 73.614 IDF Israeli Sand Grey 61-73 and the Magach 6 with Model Master 2138 Israeli Sand/Grey. IMHO the modelmaster paint's sade is a little closer to the real one.
