M5 stuart

I think it's done. Still bare, wondering if I should seal the work in with a semi-gloss or flat clear.

I am thinking of making my first diorama, which is the M5 cutting through bocage, with infantry behind using the tank as cover.

Any criticism is welcome. Don't be polite, give it to me.

It was the Tamiya's M5 Stuart https://www.scalemates.com/kits/130067-tamiya-35097-m5a1

 

No scratchbuilding or aftermarket parts, used tamiya paints with vallejo's wash and pigment. Used gloss clear before and after applying decals and washes, then finished with flat clear.

Great job.  Love the weathering.   I think you have a mold seam on both sides of the main barrel.  Perhaps a quick hit of 600 grit sandpaper would knock it back.  Might have to do a quick repaint of the barrel.  Hope you don't mind me pointing it out, you've done a masterful job.
