Whoa! Nicely and subtly done! That's some of the nicest weathering I've seen on here. Not dripping with rust, gobs of muds, and flicked on spatters. The streaking on the turret is masterful!

No interest in this model, but big props to Tamiya for still developing new kits for the others to copy right down to the photo-etch and decals.
