Picked this old kit from the local hobby shop for $33.
It will be a straight OOB build; nothing overly fancy; see how this kit goes together. It is a Tamiya, so chances are, it’ll get done by tonight.
Not as complex as @Vladyslav Ryefield build, but it will satisfy my WW2 Soviet Armor craving until I get thd kit he’s building for us.
So… Let us begin!
Turret was quick and (almost) clean. I did a little boo-boo on thf cupola. Nothing some Mr. Surfacer can’t fix.
Well; that was quick. I’m done with my Tamiya T-34/85 build. Now for primer and paint tomorrow.
Built in a day….something seems wrong by that.
Without any drills, wire, bolts, nuts and other things that are absolutely not needed for quick assembly out of the box!
Oh, if only I could. I would have assembled my set long ago, painted it and put it on the shelf.
And so, while I finish my own, while I paint, etc., you will write down your model for a long time in your track record and start something else!
Now thats rapid … Well done a nice quick clean build … looks great
The holes on the bottom hulls of old Tamiya kits bother me somehow.
Glued a plate of 0.10 styrene to fix that issue.
Threw a base coat of AK Interactive Russian Green over Vallejo Flat Black.
I think it’s too bright a shade of green, might throw a coat of Tamiya Dark Green 2 over it to dull down the brightness.
Personally, I like the color. I wouldn’t change anything.
In my opinion, everything turned out very well.
Colour looks good to me, and keep in mind that usually weathering darkens the base…
I think the green is good mate …
I agree with Carlos, any weathering should darken the model down to what you want. Looks good from here.
That’s a great 4BO. It will look excellent under weathering.
Thanks for the good comments about the overall color. I was a bit concerned about it, but I will move forward with the build. Currently leaving the drive sprocket and idler wheels and poly caps drying. I will have to tackle the wheels late on and once everything is painted in the base color, I will move with the gloss varnish, decals and pin weathering. All these will be done with AK Interactive washes.
Just finished painting the tank.
I’ll be taking care of the tracks, then work on the weathering and washes.
Started to do some detail painting on the hull.
Coming together nicely Reynier
Paint was just bothering me too much, so I gave the T-34 a new coat of Vallejo Protective Green.
Came out a slight shade darker, which calmed my OCD down.
Looks better IMO.
Yes; much better in my humble opinion.
