Hi, I've started this thread a bit late in the process, but better late than never. A bit before Christmas I was told not to get the Airfix version, and to look at some other ones (Here is that thread). But this was a Christmas present, and I've enjoyed the build so far. I'm disagreeing a bit with the box though. I'd have expected them to use to Russian name, or rather, Stalin's Russian name (Iosif, rather than Joseph.) But it wasn't my choice, oh well. So far I've assembled it and have painted the base colour and the machine gun: I'm just waiting for my airbrush propellant and the white paint to arrive in the post (due in tomorrow) to begin applying a snow camouflage to it using the hairspray technique. Just a few questions: How (and where) would you apply rust to it? Should I add the decals now or after the camo? And, do you know of any references for a Soviet tank (preferably the IS-3) with a snow camouflage? Thanks
