This one really took off! Excellent work here, everyone! Sorry I bogged down, but I sure am impressed by what you all have done.

Richard, your T-72 is coming along nicely.

Hi Jbranca,

Very nice camo painting. What technique did you use to make so clean and direct separation between the colours?

Tamas



Hi Tamas,

Thank you! To delineate the edges, I used this:



Using it was more problematic than usual because of the really hot weather we were having a few weeks ago (I expect it was the same in Hungary). When I was painting the yellow-grey parts, I applied the putty in the evening so I could paint it the next evening after work.

But when I looked at it again, it had gotten so hot in the apartment (we live right under the roof in our building), that the putty had become liquid and expanded, sticking the hull, turret and side skirts to my desk and obliterating the contours I had so carefully applied the night before.

A few more hours were required to adjust the contours, and then I sprayed it, but then removing the putty was a huge chore, because it had flowed into all the nooks and crannies in the tank and it literally swallowed up a few small parts that broke off and I never recovered. I had to replace them from the spares box, or scratch them, etc.

In short, it turned out well enough, but was a royal pain...but all‘s well that ends well, as the man said.

I ended up with my project in the campaign.
It was a long process, but I managed to get in time.
Here's the final photos.





However, it was a pleasure to participate in the campaign.
With respect!

Nice work so far Jerry. Love the camo choice.



Thanks a lot, Peter. What attracted me to this camo pattern for the UD is that it‘s only two-tone - almost all Soviet/Russian camo from this era is three-tone with the black “crow‘s feet“, so this is a nice difference.

Cool Abrams, Jose!

Hey everybody,

Lots of excellent builds showing up here, also of kits not often seen, like the Challenger I and the Ariete. I‘d like to comment on them individually, but the combination of work (same old story) and being in a lot of campaigns simultaneously has really been eating up a lot of time (especially the BM-27 Uragan for the Launchers campaign was pretty labor-intensive)...

Anyway, here are some progress pics of my T-80UD, the camo basecoat is finished and in the next few days I‘ll be weathering it:









Have a good one,

Jerry

I finally got round to finishing off the build of my Tamiya T-72. It hardly seems worth posting progress shots as it's such a simple build...




The only thing that isn't OOB is the mesh at the back.

Great Job Lap Man. You really added some depth and variation to the single paint colour. Fantastic job.
