WHAT!!!! 

I don't believe my tiring eyes Greg, surely you can't be serious?

I suppose I'm ten hours ahead of most of you lot, so thats probably more than enough time to punch this one out. 

Looks like I'll be updating the Build list yet again (although I was expecting that this weekend). 

 

Cheers and good luck... Dave

Thanks Steve,

 

This won't be as good as your Sherman but I will see what I can do with it. Haven't built a tank in a long time. Especially one this small.

 

Cheers Greg

I admire your pluck Greg, a personal Blitzbuild. It should be fun to watch, good luck buddy.

Good work fella, keep on keeping on.

 

I may have been wah'd here,  but I believe the two turrets are for the T-34/76 and T34/85 variants (size of the main gun) rather than T34 and T85.

Hi PLC,

 

I'm no tank expert so you maybe correct. I'm just going by what it says on the box 😉

 

I think the bigger gun looks best anyway in this scale. The smaller one doesn't seem tough enough for a Soviet tank.

Mate, Tanks must have big guns, it's the law !!!

 

Knocking out the kit in a few hours is back to proper modelling, although I would have done this in @30 minutes in 1980, obviously with the benefits of glue & paint marking the carpet.

Update 2......

 

Swift progress this afternoon was delayed by literally waiting for paint and or glue to dry. After this evenings session i have broken the back of this build and have decided to wait until tomorrow to finish it off no point in russian it now eh???!!!

 

I'll get me coat....

The paint on the upper hull is first brushed coat and looks messy. It will improve with two lighter coats in the morning. 

 

Now its wine o'clock..thanks for watching

 

Cheers Greg

Thanks Stix, 

 

First small scale tank I've done in a while. A wee bit practice for the Panzer IV GB.

 

Cheers Greg

Sounds like your laying down the gauntlet there Lawser 😮

 

If I had pushed ahead last night's could have had the whole job done but decided to watch Killing Eve instead. 

 

The T-34 has had another coat of green and once that's cured I will do a bit of weathering and finish it off by lunchtime. 

 

I don't have anymore series 1 kits in the stash so this really will be my last entry in this awesome GB 😢

Thanks to you Mike and Dave for being great hosts and motivators.

 

Cheers Greg

What a good way to end the GB! A fine choice of subject as well. 

 

Tony.

Thanks Tony, 

 

I don't think I ever built this one before. As you can see from the lead post it was a bargain I could pass up and was just waiting in the stash for an opportunity such as this GB to be built. 

 

Cheers Greg

Update 3.....

 

Main colours are on and set, pics show my washes around the raised detail areas. Most of this will be wiped off when sufficiently cured. Next is drybrush on a high light coat followed by some weathering powders, and inbetween a couple of transfers. Clock is ticking so heres the last update pics..

There were a couple more but theres a problem on Flickr at the moment so thats it for now.

 

Back in a bit...

 

Cheers Greg
