    Default Any plastic modelers among us?

    Well I have just completed another tank and though I might share it with you guys.

    I used to make models all through my younger years and teens, but got out of it when I just couldn't finish any of them anymore. I always made aircraft, mostly German, and the more interesting stuff usually. I started up again due to wanting a de-stress from my day job, plus wanted to see if I could still do it. I couldn't believe how many new products and techniques were out there so learning curve is kinda sharp. Still I like using some of them and they certainly add to the model.

    So the tank I just finished is a Soviet KV-1, with Applique Armour. Its a Tamiya kit, 1/48 Scale with a metal cast bottom of the hull to give the kits some weight. I painted with Vallejo Model air paints, and weathered with Mig Abteilung oils. Finally dusted with pigments and some Tamiya weathers kits. What do you think?
