Trumpeter Mk VII

Thanks I just noticed the accent was missing in the N.

Also thanks @Johnnych01 for the critique. Made me rethink the masks and I took some time to reshape them and resize a bit and I am much happier now

Looks good Mead :+1:

But not quite: you need “БЕЙ”, and you have “БЕИ”. They are completely different letters.
You need an apostrophe on the last letter, like Tom2022’s.

I’ve since added the accent character. I appreciate you and @Tom2022 pointinh it out

Wow Mead that is really sweet. The shading is excellent and the stenciling is perfect.

Thank you!! I am very happy with how the paint job turned out. I’ve been really focusing on my shading while painting.

I wasn’t sure if I liked the stencils, so your comment is appreciated. They felt a bit messy but after reviewing photos the real things were a bit sloppy as well

There is a Russian proverb: “Better late than never.”

You can compare your stencil with a commercial product.
This is clearly only for one side.

i finally managed to mask off the BMP-3 and apply the green paint, after which i dropped the turret section and broke loose the internal turret assembly…which i have glued again.

Started to weather the Kv-1 tried a technique for the wear on the steel wheels that I saw in Night Shifts video on his JS-2 build. I have done the inside of this wheel but not the outside yet, thoughts on how it looks?

Looks good to me Mead. What was the method ? I use AK steel pigments for that effect on wheel rims.

Same idea but I don’t have steel pigment. Painted it with Humbrol aluminum, then a thin coat of Vallejo natural steel over that, followed by buffing with graphite from a pencil on my finger
