After assembling the tracks on the tank and retouching some chipping, it’s time to end with it by adding the fuel barrels and painting the tank commander.
I made a mistake applying some Vallejo varnish to the pigments on the tracks, as I moistened most of them destroying their original color. 🙁
Otherwise, I like the achieved weathered tone. It doesn’t look like the one I had in mind, but I’m happy with the ‘mistake’.
The tank commander has been painted with Vallejo acrylics, and a satin coat of satin varnish has been applied with airbrush (Marabu Seidenmattlack) to all of the tank. So here they’re, the final pics of the T-34:
And with these pics, I close the WIP and the T-34 goes to the showcase. Now I’m going to continue with a Panzer III platoon from Battlefront (Afrika Korps) and two Hummers from IrishSerb (a gift from HeresyBrush), but I want to continue with my 1/72 collection.
So the next 1/72 could be a Sturer Emil or a Panther A with Zimmerit… what do you think?? 🙂
