Looks cool. A good jungle fighting colour scheme.
A bit shiny for my liking, but I do like the effect on the intake vents.

Very nice looking, although slightly to shiny for my boring, Greenskin corrupted tastes.

Looks nice so far, but i think you should lighten it a bit. maybe paint camo in the center column.

Funny you should say that firewarrior I had been thinking about that ever since I had been painting this tank I may try it on the next hammer head I do.

That darn glossy comes form 2 things:
1) the tamiya spray (it dries glossy its very annoying)
2) the gloss sealer I use before spraying matte sealer
Once the matte goes on the glossy shine goes away (very nicely I might add too )

I have to say that I like how it shines It looks like a new Hammerhead, ready for the battle.
The scheme and painting are excellent
