Idea for this thread stolen from Lady Z. :D I build and paint 1/144 scale tanks. This picture gives you an idea of how small a scale it is.

Wow great work Machinehead! What kind of lighting to you use? You must have a really steady hand, very impressive.

Thanks! I use a 60 watt bulb on my computer desk and one of those magnifiers that you wear on your head so I can see what I'm doing. Edit - My work area.

Thanks! It takes a couple of hours to prime, base coat, ink wash and paint each one.

Thanks Micah! Hey Felix here are those early production Tigers. Bottom one is primed and base coated, the top one is also ink washed to darken up the details. Edit - added picture of a Tiger almost done painting and one with dry brush done with ink washed one for comparison
