T-34/85, Prague 1945

Here are some photos of a T-34/85 I did sometime back, it got shelfed for a while and have not touched since. Not finished yet, still some painting left to do. This model was my first built in years after being abscent from modelling for a while. The T-34/85 represents a tank from the 3rd Guards Armored Corps in Prague 1945. Paintwork and finishing are the main emphasis of the build. The wear on the turret is painted to depict a heavily used vehicle that has survied towards the end of the war. I got feedback that some people found the wear on the turret to be exccesive; I may have gone a bit overboard nonetheless it was a paint effect that I sought out to achieve and IMO quite successful. Another area of weathering I was quite happy about was the way the mud turned out. The intention was to create damp mud which looked better in photos compared to viewing it live!

Enough talk. Here're the photos.
