Applied a flat coat. I tried using Vallejo Satin varnish, as i do have a bunch of it, but it kept clogging the airbrush. So i cleaned the AB and used the Testors Flat.
I used Vallejo Acrylics for highlighting/ dry brudhing. You can see it in my poorly lit pictures, but i think i like oils better.

Coming in with something I've been wanting to build for awhile, from way back when I was still new to World Of Tanks. The mighty KV-3. If we can get another WOT campaign again sometime, I'd like to build another one with the Dt-25.

Got the Trumpeter KV-3, I've been slowly been working on it for awhile now, but haven't posted it yet.

Hello everyone!
My first progress on Trumpeter's kit 01507: Sd.Kfz.7 Late.
I definitely do not like the kit. The latest models of Trumpeter's towed tractor (No.01583 and No.09538) are of much better quality.






Good luck to all.

ComradeMP,

Those Trumpeter KV tanks are really simple kits to assemble. I have finish the KV-1 and KV-8 and they were one of the most enjoyable builds I have been involved with.

I also have the KV-3 in my stash so I will be most interested as to how it turns out.

Kalin,

Sorry to hear about the quality of kit, but it sure does have a lot of detail for the under belly.

Hallo, Mark! Wonderful idea to make a model of Sd.Kfz.7 Late production, but ...sprue casting leaves much to be desired.

Just wiped my future buy on evil bay. Thanks however for the quality type Noº. Will take a look at them. Going to join this campaign with a towed Big Gun.
Will be an easy build, all covered for transport.
Introduction and pictures will follow ASAP.

Nice campaign to watch, good luck everyone,

eMan,
I really like the camo. Did you use Panzer Putty?

Hello Mark, I use blu tack to assist in airbrush the camouflage, it's not reusable after painting but it works fine.

I have blu-tak I have been recycling for quite awhile, but I've not used it for large-scale masking like that. I used Panzer Putty once and found that it left an oily residue in the acrylic paint. Yours looks great.

I'll call my Rubezh done:




Yes, I need something better than my spray booth for taking photos, but it's got the best lighting in the house right now...

There are some blemishes on the windows I need to see if I can fix, but I wanted to get some photos before I potentially make things worse....

Hi Marc,

Can you up.oad some better oics? This kit is on my wishlist and would like to see yours as reference before deciding the purchase.
My dad made me a KV1/85 in the mid 70’s from a Soviet kit (probably the same moulding like the ones sold now under Eastern Express brand and I have some nice memories. Would be a memorial build but this time a better kit.

I assume you are referring to me. I am not sure what other pics i have taken that might be "better". But i will say this kit is very nice. It is an easy build. The tracks are probabaly the hardest part, but if you have built indy tracks, then no problem.
Some minor cleaning required of some parts and some ejector filling, but most will not be seen. Read the http://www.4bogreen.com website. It'll tell you the issues with all the kits available .

My latest update.:
I screwed up and tried a new product- Vallejo Crushed Grass effect. I do not like it. It didn't replicate what it shows on the bottle. And i did not see a tutorial about how to use it.
So while searchong for a tutorial, i came across one for the Vallejo Acrylic ground texture. It looks interesting, so i bought it and kind of added it to the tracks along with some static grass. While i am still not totally pleased, i did salvage it. ( no pics of before hand.) This mistake killed my motivation.

So i post my current progress and ask for advice on what might to do to make it a little better.


Oh, and of course the rear machine gun broke.

Marc,

The grass does look a little oversized when you consider the size of the tank, but not bad.
