PlaStix posted a topic in Ready for Inspection - ArmourThis is my build for the 70s NATO vs Warsaw Pact GB. It was a lovely kit to make apart from the instructions being a bit wrong in a couple of places. I hadn't heard of Modelcollect before but would certainly buy one of their kits again. The detail is excellent for such a small kit. A bonus is that the kit comes with a metal barrel and Link & Length tacks. The kit originally came with band tracks but these, I found, have been replaced - however, there are no instructions for putting the L&L tracks together - it would help if you have made some L&L tracks before - which I have done. The model is OOB apart from where I had to replace a handrail with wire as the kit part was very fragile and snapped early on. The model depicts a T-64 somewhere in Eastern Europe during the 1970s. I used Humbrol, Revell, Citadel and Railmatch Acrylic paints and all were applied with brushes. All the paints were thinned with water. The WIP can be found here. Lots of photos: I have finished building a small scenic base for this kit and have taken some photos with the tank in place. The full set can be found here. A few here - these are new photos which were taken in daylight - posted on 15/03/17: Comments and suggestions welcome. Kind regards, Stix
