Extremely nice and clean detail work! Also the painting and finishing is really nice (good tips for me, as I'm a "green armor builder" as well Thank you for this feature!

PS: I should have known all these details when it came to vote in the DMOM! Congratulations to that very nice piece of work again!

The model looks great! I have a love for the obscure and a soft spot for small armies. If you had done a little searching on this site, you may have saved yourself some time and work. My company, Decalcomaniacs! makes a decal sheet of everything you need to mark postwar Finnish AFV's. We also do a T-72 sheet with markings for T-72's. If you are still interested, stop by the website. Also, here's a link to Frank DeSisto's review: Time on Target. Hope that helps!

Thanks for the compliments.

^^ I've been aware of Decalcomaniacs making several sheets of Finnish armor decals, the problem has just been availability, and me being unable to make purchases from ebay, which seems to be the only place to buy them. Now when I got a visa electron from another bank where it actually works properly in online stores, I'll sure consider getting a sheet or two.

Eetu proves he's the man, especially when it comes to scratching the beast. You have my compliments under the campaign thread, yet again I congratulate you on a job very well done!
