Behind the Iron Curtain
Start Date 17/11/2015
End Date 9/11/2016
Anything produced or operated by the USSR from 1950 - 1990 from the Army, Airforce or Navy.
Doesn't have to be theatre specific, but there's the option to cover Russian forces in Afghanistan etc which allows for plenty of options.
I added the tracks and spent a couple of days painting them with various enamels. I knocked up some track rust pigment from pastels and applied this setting if with neat IPA then a drybrush with Vallejo Steel to pick out the contact surfaces. I watched a great video on YT of a guy weathering tracks which was really helpful.
The top of the hull got painted in Tamiya JASDF Olive which gives a good approximation of 4BO green I then lightened the base colour and picked out panel edges in the lightened mix modulating everything back with a very well thinned coat of the base colour. It's also had a filter wash of burnt umber oil paint.
Still a good bit to do with a spot filter and dust streaking. I'm happy with the tracks and the modulation on the 4BO.
