    Here is a video of T55 / T62 / T64's http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0UmthizYSc&feature=related I spent 6 years in the Marine Corps. and I see alot of modelers make this mistake. They darken their models with a wash. I have never seen a tank get darker over time only lighter. Hope you enjoy the video. Keith

    Hi Donnie, I enjoy building Russian equipment. T62's in Russian hands were 4B0 green over all for the duration of cold war. Testors Russian Green; I don't know what russian tanks this was on it is too blue. Do you like to air brushing in acrilics? Here is a paint formula for 4B0 Testors color. 1) Prime your tank in yellow. 2) Paint in 4B0. 4736 Interior Green 1 bottel Add 4606 Raw Umber 2 eye dropers Mix Well. 3) Spray Testors Semi-gloss over this and you will have a Russin Green T62. Hope this helps, Keith

  9. Sneeky Nazis; doing the alignment like a tiger tank. OYH!
  10. I like Russian armor and the reason there is no Storage on the tanks is because the tanks doubled as troop transports. Markings were painted on by the crews or tank regiments. This is why you don't see a good numbering system either.

  23. I have had issues with doing a wash over enamel paints. It seen like you can not wash oil / enamel paint over with out removing or mixing with the base coat. I have never used future and does this not leave a gloss coat over the paint? How can I go about this with out using future? Thanks. Pappy

    USMC Trucks Help

    Hi Mike, I know for a fact that the M35A2's were used in Iraq and in Somalia. I served in both areas in the Corps. Road around in some and I got to say; what a hard ride. It is almost like being kicked by a mule or riding in a buck board. The M35A2's were painted in 3 color nato, the wheel were in black and in the deserts; pinkish tan the under bodies were left in nato green. Pappy
