Here are a few pictures of Tamiya`s 1/35th Matilda, which a close friend of mine built, and he has kindly given it to me to finish off.

I have applied the basic green paint scheme using AK`s 4BO Russian green set, with a small amount of mud applied to the hull. The grass mat is from Model-Scene, onto which I have sprinkled some of Basecraft`s mixed leaves.

With the built model came a set of excellent Soviet decals by Echelon, and according to the instructions, there are:

"markings enough for 7 complete builds or more, from a total of 12 vehicle-specific options plus plenty of spare generics."

I hope to finish this in the near future, using the grass mat with some additional Soviet infantry or tank crew.

Starting to have a thing for acryl modulation. I'm a life long user of the enamel. Used the AK 4BO on my BA-64B. Really liked it. Gonna use the Ammo from Mig modulation on my US M6 Anti Tank Dodge. Check into the company called "Tank". They have some really nice Soviet figures.
