That looks awsome. Great tip on what used to be a difficult and feared bit of detail.

This wouldn't have been used by Soviet tanks would it? I've got 2 on the bench and this would be a good time to practice this technique

Thanks for the comments everyone, it really is pretty easy, the hard part was trying to not sound nervous when the camera was running!! Panzer, I have never seen it on Russian equipment, but I wouldn't put it past them after all they were the masters of "Maskirovo". Kid, did you get my private message earlier? Should see something in your mailbox by early next week at least.

Rick, just for your information, the strips are the "hessian" material. "Hessian" as a Biritsh term for what, in North America, is known as "burlap". It's the same rough jute material used in Ghillie suits and the backs of carpets.

Try again! Tankmodeler, Thanks for the information. I always wondered where the term came from and what it meant, thanks for clearing up a lot of confusion!!
