Default Hammerhead 'Tiger'

This is the paint job I'm currently doing on my Hammerhead as you can see it is literally 1/2 Done.

looks good so far, but why didnt you do each 'line' all the way across instead of half?

Looks good. But I too am curious as to why you didn't make the lines go all the way across.

For the lines, did you tape them and then just brush the light color on or did you make them by some other means.

Didn't you guys read his first post, he said that he was half done, hence the lines only covering half the tank. Nice job so far though. What is that supposed to be inside the Hammerhead? Will this be a suicide tank delivering a nuke into enemy lines?

Yes, but you would expect most people to do a whole line at a time, not got half way then start a new line. :-\

I was asking why he did it like that...

I did it like that so the other half would be a mirror image. It will match the harsh angles that exist in an urban environment. Plus i wanted to see what it would be like then before i knew it id done half!

On the inside is the power plant/generator for the rail gun, it says that underneath the image.

I didnt use tape, i drew the lines on with a soft lead pencil then painted within the lines. easy!

I've got a similar tiger striping on my tanks as well. Interesting to see your take on it. You did much harsher jagged lines than I did. Mine's more flowing and smooth.

My whole cadre theme is a urban one so i decided to use points and angles to match what exists in the urban environment.
