  1. Very nice result, Radek!
    Nice weathering too!

  2. Excellent job on your T-72, Radek. You have obviously used a lot of layered weathering effects to produce an authentic finish. It looks like you used wash techniques for the dust accumulation which bring out detail nicely and maybe some weathering powders (?). I like the varied tone of the camo as well. Overall painting and weathering is outstanding. The build detailing work also really contributes to the realism for me in the way you have done the engine screens and fuel lines for the drum tanks. Inspiring work - it makes me want to dig out my Trumpeter T-72B from the stash.

    • Hi Colin, Iam glad you like it. Yes, I used some pigments first, then a wash dusts, some oils paints, engine oils washes, rust effects ... almost everything you can remember 🙂 I was surprised it was only primer and acrylic paint, no clear coat on it and stand still without any problems.
      You should start build your T72B tonight 😀

  3. These Meng kits for T-72 series are a joy to build, high detail and very workable plastic! Well done on paint and weathering!

  4. Great looking model, Radek. T-72s look just like a tank is supposed to look: Long, low, and mean. You have captured it perfectly.

  5. Beauty in the Beast. lean and mean.
    Thank you!

  6. 🙂 … Greetings … 🙂 :
    I see Mother Nature has done wonders on this model Radek. The weathering is very convincing, any chance we will se this one on a diorama ?

  7. Hi, and thanks for compliments, diorama is on the plan but for the winter, not in summer 🙂

    Awesome job! This T-72 looks like she's been rode hard/put up wet due to the harsh elements and combat she's experienced! Very detailed!

  9. Looks spot on mate, very convincing!
