1/35 T-34/85 Completed In Winter Camo
Posted by route62 on Wednesday, May 16, 2018 8:55 AM

As part of the Russian armor group build I finished this T-34.  It is an Alanger kit which is really a Maquette kit rebox.  The kit is meh at best.  Added resin fuel tanks and did some light scratch build like grab handles.  I used picture hanging wire for the tow cables.  The track is aftermarket from Miniart.  

Using household supplies and common art supplies, I weathered this in winter camo using hairspray chipping, washes, filters, streaks and stains, snow, pastels etc.  I like to show that weathering can be achieved without have to buy those expensive brand name weathering supplies which are really just re packaged common art supplies.  Questions and critiques welcome.

Very nice.  What did you use for the snow jammed in the road wheels?

That came out damned good! Yes And no, modelers do not need to use fancy expensive new products to get great results! We did just fine for decades without them. Great job!

Elmers glue mix with water 1:1 and then I added baking soda until I got the mix I wanted.  The more baking soda you add the drier and more like powder snow you get.  You can go less soda and you will get slushy wet snow, just coat with gloss clear after it dries to give it a wet look.

I then took a brush and packed, spread the mix on the model.
