The D-20 is too big at 152mm. The MT-LB was prime mover for the lighter/smaller 120mm D-30 howitzer. It is also available from Trumpeter in early and late versions.
Thanks for the replies , ive just got the trumpeter late cannon version .
looking good so far.
Nice and clean build.
I built the Skif one years ago. Not a perfect kit but with some attention it could turn into a pretty nice rendition.
Painting, black first , not done a model this way in a long time . Mr surfacer 1500 thinned with levelling thinner,
Then i choose to go with tamiya dark green , mixed with a bit of clear . Then lighter coats with flat yellow. I used tamiya thinners…worked great .
Got some zeds on…little bit of hairspray chipping , not sure whether to clear coat before weathering…probably will.
Nice work with the the greens.
Wheels painted , more dust will be on them when i tie it all in with the tracks…which will be painted next.
For those that are interested, the only thing different between those kits (and the Chinese version) is the attachment of the towing lug to the muzzle brake. In other words, they are early and late D-30s, not a D-30 and D-30A.
