Jagdpanzer SU-85 (r) MiniArt 35229
Posted by MattSz on Friday, May 19, 2017 10:32 AM

Hello, Smile
Never too much of a good thing so I started next project - Captured SU-85 from Mini Art and I decided to share my progress there.

The box contain a lot of sprues, so the assembly process will bring a lot of fun.

I will try to paint it the same like this paint shemes shown: Russian green on the hull behind the wheels and german dunkelgelb and olivegrun on the rest of the vehicle:

As always I made in-box review video. If someone is interested please follow this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVWi0Nff9ZQ

Progress photos soon :)

Interested to see how one of these Mini Art kits build up.

I did the same vehicle useing the old tamiya kit a few years ago. After looking at pics, i am not sure the Germans would have used there own Olive green. I sprayed the yellow leaving patches of the Russian green showing, that seemed to make more sense to me.

Thank you guys for your interest, it's nice to know that somebody follow my work with this kit :)

Bish- in my opinion russian green instead of the olivegrun is more possible but following this idea I would have to paint green first and then apply the dunkelgelb. I want to try black and white technique on this model so I think that I first will apply the yellow colour.

Btw: I spent some time with the kit and assembled all wheels, each comes from four parts so the process was a little bit time consumpting but the details on finished wheel are worth this time.

Ah gotta love cleaning up the road wheels. I just do them while watching TV or YouTube videos.

Thats probably the way i should have gone. I sprayed mine green, weathered it and then added the yellow. In hindsite it seemed a bit of a waste.

That looks rather nice, i am curious about these Miniart kits.

Hello.

Summer is not conducive to modeling but slowly im wrking with this project :)

I want to put the crew in the vehicle and leave all hatches opened, so I prepare the interior for painting.


I like how the MiniArt makes his kits: even those parts which will be invisible after final assembly are very well done.

I also did the most tedious part of the work- cleaned and prepared to assembly all track links.

Yeah, that does look like a really good kit. The detail is even better than the Dragon T-34/SU-85s I've bought.

I'm eager to see how this MiniArt SU-85 builds up, it looks quite detailed.  I have the Dragon SU-100, but no SU-85s....maybe I should switch to MA!!

BTW, it looks like this kit does not have a full interior, correct?  I've noticed that MA and some other mfgs have started to release kits with full interiors.
