My soviets are tired of walking so I will do up a armored car and a truck this month.
Haven't done model kits in some time so this should be interesting.


progress so far

Those look like great kits and Tamiya is an excellent manufacturer -
Are you using these in a table top wargame i.e. Bolt Action or some such? I was thinking of getting into WW2 historical and was wondering if you game, what you might suggest -
Thanks,
RD

I plan on using these for my bolt action russian army.
I got the ba-64 built, just need to fill in a few gaps, the Gaz truck needs the riders to get built. I hope to get that done tonight and then prime tomorrow.
I will actually take some pics of the armored car and a mini so you can get an idea of scale.

Putting these together was a lot of fun, and while the warlord kits are good, these have a bit more detail and are just a bit cheaper. I think I ordered these off of amazon for 30 for both maybe so it was a good deal.

I have really really enjoyed bolt action. Its fun, pretty easy to get into, and thanks to WWII being a popular era for wargaming, there are tons of options for figures.
I was actually working on a intro to bolt action post some time ago, I guess its about time to finish it and put it up here.

Took a pic of the Gaz truck with a black tree design russian in front.



Seems close enough to me.

I put the finishing touches on the truck and armored car, the truck came with a driver and 4 passengers for the back which were kind of neat to put together.

Hope to get this all primed on tuesday.

Finished base coating the crew and I hope to get them dipped tomorrow.
The vehicles are primed, but I may go back over them with a slightly lighter shade of green. I bought some vallejo russian green primer and its a good green, but it looks almost black from more than 5 feet away unless under some really heavy lighting so I may try and throw down some heavy highlighting of vallejo cayman green which is a shade or so lighter. My worry is that I won't be able to pull off chipping and weathering well enough if it all looks almost black anyway.

Crew

Vehicles, gaz truck, BA64, and a t34/85 that I base coated with krylon camo forest green a long long time ago.
You can see where I was playing with colors on the bottom of the truck bed.

Toned the green down a bit, and got some weathering done. Now its a gloss coat, wash, and mud it up.

So close to being done. Yeah it's late again....but I will finish.



Playing with pigments as weathering.



Pretty much on the final stage where I plan on mixing up some mud using fiber paste and a couple shades of brown and slap it around the tank tracks and under the fenders of the truck and armored car. Don't want it too muddy, but enough to tell its been through some recently.
