1/35 MiniArt SU-85 Mod. 1943 Early Production
Posted by Grant Dalzell on Monday, October 29, 2018 10:34 PM

Kit- 1/35 MiniArt SU-85 Mod. 1943 Early Production with crew

Extras - 1/35 Hornet Russian WWII Tankers heads
         - Aber Metal barrel 

Really enjoyed this, but Armour takes a lot more time than aircraft! I think I could knock out 2 or 3 aircraft to this one tank.

Painted with Gunze Russian Green II lacquer and Mig washable white camo for the camo.

Other paints used - Tamiya acrylics, Citadel. On the crew, Vallejo model colours, Citadel.

Both crew and tank have oils used on them, tank has pigments as well.

So the dio base, doesn't really suit the scheme, but let's say that it has turned spring and the winter camo has not been washed off yet. I know my figure painting isn't great, but I am happy with how they turned out, I have not done a lot of figures.

Looks great! Nice job on the camo scheme and weathering.

How did you like the Miniart kit? I just picked up my first one and it's intimidating at first glance...

Best regards,

Mike

I don't do much armour, this is just the exterior kit, a lot of parts and a lot of tiny parts, and I some pieces the locating pins to holes were not big enough to fit, nothing major though

Great job on the SU-85 and the figures and diorama look pretty darn good too!
