Hobby Boss Type 59

I did, thank you.
I still have problems with splatter and had to go back and touch up.

I also freehand as I am too lazy to mask. Some tips that you may already have discovered so my apologies if so. I thin the paint heavily maybe 3/4:1 thinner to paint. This allows you spray at a much lower pressure and to work closer to the surface. Once you have outlined the pattern, spraying into the pattern at an angle also helps to cut down the overspray. The thinner paint will require multiple passes to get coverage so this will increase the time it takes to paint. May take some practice and experimentation with the paint thinner ratio with your paint of choice. Hope this is helpful. Good luck.

I suppose it is unlikely that this company will ever make THAT incarnation, right?

I don’t understand?

All you need now is a civilian figure…

I think he’s referencing the 1989 model

This kit comes with this camp scheme as an option and the famous photo is the version with the US 105mm (which I think HB is doing).

So I was wrong. The Tank Man, as he is called, is available as a figure.

No problems

And a couple more tanks…

@Dan : very nice!!

Thank you Sir

Calling it done.
My tracks didn’t turn out too well.


Looks good to me Dan!

Thanks, I really didn’t do a good job on the tracks, especially the other side.

Looking good. I like the camo sxheme!

Thank you much

That came out pretty damn nice.

Thank you, the tracks on the other side are not good
