That is just amazing, that must have taken forever and with so much detail.

Thanks wiz, yeah... this thread is over 2 yrs old now! I really wish i had more time to dedicate to painting.
The camo did actually. When staring at it up close to add the final color the pattern started to move and pulsate and just mess with my eyes. It was pretty crazy!

A little over a month of my free time.
Thanks dude!

Little bit of progress. Got all the metals done as well as oil washed the panel lines. Not too much left to do except the details and optics. Should be finished within the next few weeks.

Please let me know what you think?

Very nice, Blue. Such an awesome tank. Hopefully 6th edition will make the skyray a great option to field. :D

Miniature camo paradox: When painting miniatures, one should make the shapes more apparent, whereas camouflage is supposed to diminish the shape of the object... I'd suggest some panels painted with just one color, to bring out the shapes... But then again, you seem to go for the more realistic style. Anyways, I like it as it is, but camouflage in miniatures have always this problem in them...
