WWII Soviets reboot (6)


While I was at the Partizan show I picked up one of the recently remastered Soviet T-70 tanks from the chaps at 1st Corps to support my Soviet horde

It's a lovely clean kit that takes very little preparation, I washed mine in soapy water and gave it a light going over with a needle file in the few places where it needed a little flash removing.


The whole thing was given a base coat of Rustoleum Camouflage Beige and then blocked in with Vallejo Russian Green. The tracks and exhausts were base-coated in a rusty mix of Saddle Brown, Black and Gunmetal Grey then the whole thing was covered in Army Painter Strong Tone.

Once dried I re-applied the base-coats then did a couple of highlights on the Russian Green by adding successively more Iraqi Sand to each layer and the exhausts and tracks were also highlighted.


I then set about making it filthy with some Tamiya weathering kits, mainly a mud stuck, then mud, dark sand and light sand weathering powders. Then adding water to a rust powder and leaving some rusty bits.

So, a nice clean model that I have made filthy!
