    trust me...this model is MILES better than your previous...and especially being 1/72.
    It simply looks like another modeller so different from your previous style.

    If i had to nit pick I would only add different tomes of rust using dry pigments on the exhaust muffler. Otherwise just brilliant.
    I trust MIG's FAQ has helped you! Twisted Evil

    Keep up the improvements!

    i hate to point out mistakes in public but since you insist
    the tracks are the wrong way they should be an inverted v as for the front drive sprocket was this the kit part because it is totally the wrong shape

    want another one
    the breech block should be either the tank colour an ivory white or a red primer and not panzer grey remember this is the pak 43 a mid/late war deseign.
    in late 1942to 1945 most german afvs had a pale cream interior with sometimes unpainted primer red floors as for open topped afvs sometimes most of the visible interior was paintid in the vehicle colour
    p.s
    another thing the return idler is sitting too low it should be slightly lower than the return rolers. was this a fault in the kit?

    as for paint i have the same problem here i use mainly tamiya acrylics and they have long been unavailable locally. i get my paints from hong kong (luckymodel) they have a very reliable service and excellent prices both as regards to items and postage. one word of advise if you are going to buy from luckymodel, always buy items markes "in stock:
    so its a good idea to always have some paint in stock
