T-62A

Recommended Posts

I picked up an old Tamiya Russian t-62a kit for $5.00. My plan is out of box with it with some weathering, but I can't find any good reference pics on the net of the tank in the field. Does anybody have any laying around that they can post here? I want to build it as a cold war tank.

 

Thanks

Donnie

Not my build, but here is a nicely done one, "pig with lipstick" so to speak. http://hyperscale.com/features/2002/t62jr_1.htm

This site has some photos of the real thing.

Even 20+ years ago, this thing was getting dogged on.

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,

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.
