Kevin Brant builds and finishes the MiniArt 1/35th scale SU-122. This offering has a particularly nice white wash in my opinion.

Beautiful work Kevin ! It is a shame that all your detailed interior is almost invisible at the end but thanks to your step by step build, we can enjoy it also.
Not sur I'll build a SU-122 soon but this build is full of lessons for any other project... many thanks for sharing

Beautiful paint and weathering! Can I ask what you used for reference?

I used the color chart provided in the kit by Ammo by Mig, and just a few images I found on the net

I was really up to build one of these. Pre-production pictures showed it with a clear upper hull. I thought....wow, all that fine interior can be visible. Alas, the production unit had NO clear upper hull. What a waste. My wallet snapped closed.

Kevin, I think you hit the nail on the head. This is a modeler's kit. You build it for the build, and, even though you can't display all the great work, you know it's there.

Very nice work, Kevin! Your effort really paid off, inside and out. The finished product looks amazing, and I really do like that camouflage pattern with the bushes painted on; it's something I've always wanted to try because it's so odd but interesting!
