First of all Merry Christmas to everyone!

Just over a year ago I posted on here my T-72B, see the first post here:

Well, it now finally has some paint on it. The base coat was painted using the AK 4BO Russian paint set in a rough modulation style (highlighted stowage bins, fuel cells etc). Detail painting done with a mix of Vallejo and Games workshop acrylics and weathered with MIG filters, AK washes etc. So this is how it looks now. Still lots to do, mainly the application of dust and dirt which I haven't tackled at all yet (mainly because I'm terrified i'll mess it up). The rollers are all painted up as well, but awaiting extensive dirtying!

Please note as well that the lighting I've used for the photography are basic hi-watt bulbs, hence the paint colour does look a little brighter than it actually is. When I get around to buying some daylight bulbs hopefully I can get some better pics done!

Enjoy the pics!

I was scrolling down to ask where you got the decal for the light cover...
yikes!
That's pretty amazing

then I went back and took the reference to it being handpainted from the post title, let others find out the way I did.


The whole tank looks the part, you are right maybe the lighting makes things look overly modulated, I'd still love to get a look at it in person.
The glacis chipping is well rendered to my eye, the shredded fender is nicely done, but that light cover blows me away.

Nice work!

Amazing finish! Love the dual chips, and the fender mash looks totally real.
