As the GB is well under way i thought i would start my contribution i have decided to have a go at a Indian T-90 this build wont have as many goodies as a russian version but i will try and make up for by trying a Tetris camo paint scheme .
The kit i will be using is Zveda's fine offering
This is the ref picture i will be using as a guide for the paint scheme
I have made a start on the turret the basic construction is done and there has been a few parts that needed filling and sanding the barrel will need a bit of work but it is looking good for a kit barrel next up will be finishing the sanding and filling then moving onto getting the final parts done to complete the turret then i can move onto the lower hull
Dan...earlier on this evening,I told Paul P he wus absolutely Barking!!!!!!!......But I think you have just trumped that mate!!!!.....Tetris camo??....NOW I know this site turns sane men into nutters,..BUT This?
Well i have sat thinking about it too and behind the tetris pieces there is a green sandy brown and black camo then the tetris design is painted over the top look between the tetris blocks and you will see it i will spray a camo then with a fine brush paint the blocks easy peezy lemon squeezy ;0 lol thanks for looking in chaps
I just looked at my Apache sitting on the side here,and had a thought(Strange I know!!!!),but here it is...why paint all these elaborate patterns on a Tank that'll go 'BANG',when a Hellfire missile drops on top of the ferkin turret!!!!,like they're designed to do... ?
Right chaps a small update for ya all i have not been at the bench for a while but last night i managed to squeeze in a few hours i attempted the additional turret armour tiles that takes the place of where the IR jammer eyes would be i had a few goes to get the size kind of right i got a tad frustrated and after 3 goes i stuck with these the turret is nearing completion the barrel has had a coat of primer which has shown a few sink marks so a final fill and sand should get rid of these sorry for not a lot of progress life is getting in the way of modelling at present
