Gaz,

Nice work with the weathering, not over done and reflects the short life of at T-34.

Thank you, Darius!

I started the weathering last night and took some low-light photos this morning. I use three washes, tan, brown, and blue in order from top to bottom and highlighted weld beads, bolts, and other features with black.










Thanks for looking!

Hi Gaz,

Awesome job with your T-34 - youve really captured the dynamics of it crossing that trench, it looks great!

Looks great Gaz! The exact moment before the font tips back to the ground. The snow is well applied too.

Happy Modeling,
Zon

Hey everybody,
I'm done building... I'll give it a few days for the paint and Future to harden, then start weathering with oils.






Cheers!

I've been away from the thread for awhile. Looks like everyone's made a great start. I hope to be wrapping up a couple other builds in then next month or soon and then I can get cracking on this campaign. I THINK I decided to do a KV-2....

Great to see some progress, Firstsergeant! I wish every aircraft kit had a decal for the IP. My painting just can't compare.

Greetings,
I've made some progress on the Sturmovik. Cockpit assembled and primed, decal is from another kit, should work well. Inside of the fuselage primed. Ready for some paint.

More to follow.

HI everyone,
A little more progress. I finally gave the tank a name and number. It's "Suvarov 166" of the 106th Tank Brigade.









I added more snow, especially to try to give the tracks that conveyor effect.

Guys,
Thank you very much!

Reminds me of a scene in Cross of Iron when theT34s are ploughing into the German lines. I think its the trench crossing and the angle of the gun and rotation of the turret that make it. Really awesome!

I must start my build soon.

Cheers
Matthew



Matthew, that scene was the inspiration for this build! Great minds think alike!
