Some of you may recall this from about a year and a half ago. The configuration I left it in was not pleasing to me, never warmed up to it so I disassembled the diorama with the intent of developing the model on its own base. Here are a couple of stage photos of my attempts to improve it. Regrettably, Flickr has gone the way of Photobucket so if you're interested in the original configuration pics can be found in the diorama section under M-60 and T-62.
Too monotone. After addition of lighter rust, spots of black, and white on the burn line
I have been shamelessly been studying Rob and T's threads on how to do rusty burnt stuff; thanks much for sharing techniques guys. This is not yet done
