Generic Iraqi Force: RH Liberation Miniatures T-62 tank finished

The RH Liberation Miniatures T-62 resin kit is finally finished. Here are a couple of pics, together with the Britannia T-55 I do now have two tanks to oppose the American invaders in Iraq. :-) Yes, I know: the tracks are the wrong way, because stupid me didn't pay attention. Some might think I overdid the weathering, but I do like totally worn third world country tracks.

Generic Iraqi Force: T-62 MBT - work continued

Hey - no, I am not dead. Although it ain't much there actually is progress. I applied the second layer of paint to my Iraqi T-62 and what you can see in the picture above is my rather smelly workplace. Smelly because on that pic you see the tank and its wash of burnt umber oil paint drying. Thinned down with turpentine...headache-causing progress I can tell you. When the wash has dried I'll give it a light drybrush and then comes the part I enjoy the most: detailing and unit marking as well as weathering, tear and wear. Soon...
