A7V Mephisto

This is the second of the A7V tanks from the Blitz's Battlegroup box.  I painted this as probably the most famous A7V of all time - Mephisto.  This tank was captured by the Australians and is in a museum in Australia.  It is the only original A7V left.  My take has more yellow than the painted that is currently on the original.  Since this is Mephisto I had to paint the mascot on the bow of the tank.

I person I like this paint job much better than Gretchen.  The Gretchen scheme has the advantage of photographing well.  Anyway, they both turned out amazing and I can't wait to get them on the table.
