Started from the excellent Takom kit - painted in three-tone RoC camo scheme - weathered to show use in military maneuvers - dirty - dirty - dirty using Ammo of Mig and various other weathering products.

This may be the first time I've seen one of these built and finished, looks impressive.

Thanks - yes, I know it seems to be an "odd" subject, but I usually build odd stuff anyway I loved the kit and had minimal issues with it. Delicate parts such as the handles for the stowage boxes and mounts for the MGs on the turret. Takom kits are kind like Tamiya to build... it was fun.

The Hoffman device does not come with the kit, and I'm not even sure if RoC uses them in their maneuvers, but I thought what's an Patton hybrid w/o a Hoffman device...

You have the Hoffmann wired up-nice attention to detail.

Thanks Gino P. Quintiliani (namedrop) sent me some very detailed photos of an actual Hoffman mounted - from different angles.

It came out really nicely. Great job on it. Glad the ref photos helped.
