Heres my Skif T-64B M1984 just about finished up. I just need to work on my lower hull weathering some more, add pigments, fuel and exhuast stains to it. I also have to attach the Commanders MG also. Some of my weathering is lost in the lighting..the paint has much more of a "tone" to it that is lost with the lighting situation I have. I should have it finished up in time for the Devilcon show this Saturday. I'm also working on a base for it. Any comments/questions are welcome.

Looking great so far scott. I can't find anything that catches my eyes as being off. How was the build on it. I have one lying in the waiting and wondered how is was to build??? Good or a bear. Can't wait to see the finished product. Hopefully someday i will be able to build models worthy of shows... Just need to keep working on my skills. But your looks good


GREAT JOB

Um, Scott - does the Skif kit look that nice out of the box?

Yours looks pretty nice as presented in the photos. I'm not a big fan of heavy weathering - obscures the hard construction and detailing work. Are there in-progress pics I can check out to see where you started to get to this point?

I wish! The Skif kit is horrible, but the only plastic T64 on the market and needs lots of help. This is my second one I've built..I did a T-64BV a couple years ago. I know MiniArm (who did the turret for this model) is going to come out with more converisons...tempting me to build a couple more

as for build up pix, try this link.

Hey Scott

Very nice t-64 you have there. How are you going to to the tracks?? Or are the finished?? I would do them really rusty because they are full metal.
I was wondering which green you used????

Hi Scott,

Cool T64! I like those white stripes, they break the monotone green colour but I would try to add some different shades of green. It still looks, well, just too green

Not a problem though but I would try to add some different shadings and highlights. Maybe some dirt and paintchips could help to brake the colour.. I'm just thinking loud so this is not critique, just the way I'm looking to it

O boy o boy, first, I must begin reading your comments

Scott,

That was an excellent T64B built, I didn't imagine that you can built up this awesome soviet tank, as I knew the Skif poor plastic quality. A built story with detail, please!

Nice build. The turret is excellent but it's the least we can except from MiniArm as regards with the cost !

It's a pity no plastic manufacturer gets interested by modern Soviet armor whereas the real stuff is not lacking. When will we see good kits of T-80's series, T-90 and others. So long and often announced and never on the shelves

Two words for you... Gloss coat. It will help prevent the wash from"Spiderwebbing", that is going everywhere on you. Hope this helps. "Q"

Scott, Nice 64. I just picked up another one as the one I had took an unplanned exit from box inthe bed of my truck. Its now scattered along Dixie Highway 31 in KY somehwere. One thing youmay want to add is a gloss coat on the drivers periscope as it is dull in the pics. Other than that, it looks great. "Q"
