Italeri 1/35 T-34/85 ‘Korean War’

After gloss coating the model, adding the decals (all 6 of them) then gloss coating again to seal the decals in, I’ve made a start on the weathering. The first job was to apply a pin wash however my usual ‘go to’ (Mig Productions Dark Wash) is not dark enough so I mixed some in a pot with black oil colour and it looks much better to me;

The next job is to spray the model with a semi-gloss varnish as I want to see how it looks as opposed to a dead matt finish, after which I’ll spray the running gear and lower hull with a mix of dark brown and black then throw some pigments on it. Hopefully the model should be done this week then I can write it up for The Modelling News as part 2 of the build review.

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 48 years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
