Nice job!  Can you tell us how you achieved such crisp lines?  I can't imagine that masking tape would yield results as good as that, at least not on such uneven surfaces.
There are 10 kinds of people:  Those who understand binary and those who don't.

Hi Mr Jahmm
Very, very nice Chieftain in the Berlin brigade colour scheme, just finished doing the same scheme on a scratch built British FV432/30 bulldog in 1:13 scale used in Berlin at the same time as your Chief.
I can confirm that with careful use of a quality masking tape this scheme is do able but skill is required too with a good airbrush and patience, took me 2 weeks to paint mine and as Jahmm says most of that is masking up.
Regards
