  1. 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


    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,

  2. 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.

  3. I have purchased a M50 Isherman and it has DS Tracks in it. The instructions say to cut in some links and you have to install the guide teeth. How does one glue the teeth to the tracks and glue in extra links on vinal tracks. Any help will be great. Thanks

  4. Hi,




    I am not trying to make a statement by the title of this; I am actually looking for a Punch and Die set from Waldron and where I can purchase one. If there is anyone that has used one before; what did you think? Thanks.

  5. Hey Mark,


    Did you say you are into Israeli Armor because, I am building a M51 Isherman. It is the Acadamy kit. Came about that my wife asked my seince I am Jewesh. Why don't I have any Israel tanks built? Having a fun time building it. Do you have any tips or tricks if you have built this kit before?

  6. 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.

  7. 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.
