Nicely done. Like the faded turret star and the stark red of the recognition panel.

Of course Tasca's Jumbo is a gem...
but all the very small and fine details you had added are great ! I also like very much the wet rings on the upper hull.
Thanks for sharing

Thank you all for your kind comments. The wet spots were a happy accident from mineral spirits to remove some of the Dust Deposit from AK. I didn't have any problems until the last of about five applications to remove material, but I thought it looked natural so I just went with it!
