Meng T-90- Close but no cigar for 2014

Well I NEARLY got something finished for 2014 lol! At least the T-90 now has the tracks on and just needs a few things doing here and there and then I can call it done; I hope that the photo’s I’ve posted have been of help to others building the Meng T-90, obviously there areContinue reading “Meng T-90- Close but no cigar for 2014”

Meng T-90-Starting the weathering

The oil paint process worked in a fashion but I was’nt entirely happy as the white spirit was dragging off the acrylic matt varnish plus I’ve altered the sand colour too much in places, anyway it’s onto the pigments and to begin with I’ve given the whole model a dusty look with Mig’s ‘Dry Mud’;Continue reading “Meng T-90-Starting the weathering”
