Hugo writes: “I painted this Tamiya 1/35 scale JS-3 Stalin using Tamiya acrylics with four different tones of green. Instead of decals the numbers are painted.” Hugo used weathering powders from Tamiya and a final coat of red brown, “very thin and airbrushed from a distance to simulate dust. I also used AK Interactive black wash and light rust for the tracks and a pin wash.”
Very realistic results, great job!
Hand painting the numbers gives your JS-3 a very realistic, battle-hardened, weathered look. An extra added touch that makes your model really stand out!
