Ammo-Mig, T-54b, 1/72

June 1, 2019 · in Armor · · 4 ≡

Hi Everyone,

Here is my -mig, , T-54b.

This is quiet a new kit and since the /55 tanks family are my most favored tanks of all time, I decided to build one. I got into this project with some concerns, because I've never built a 1/72 scale model, but soon after the start I understood that this one belongs to the upper league ?

The parts are extremely detailed and with perfect fit, instructions are clear and simple and what I liked the most are the assist parts for track assembly and for accurate PE bending.

There are options for 8 camouflage schemes (Vietnam, Egypt, Syria), but I decided to paint a Soviet version.

Main colors are A.mig-083 and washable white. weathering effects by Ammo-mig and AK. Also a home made wash using Abteilung 502 engin grease with Ammo-mig enamel odorless thinner.

Build was almost straight out of the box, with minor modifications on turret handles. Total building/painting/weathering time was 14 hours... I finished it in four days?

Have a great weekend guys, and sorry for my English ?
