I was shocked to find that I started work on this model in June last year. As readers may have noticed I've been putting up work in progress reports as I seem to have found my model making mojo again, which is a good thing.
Above is the current state of my Pokhodnaya Boyevaya Platforma or Object 295, which is less of a mouthful for my non-Russian speaking readers. The picture shows how untidy and rough looking my models are as I work the paint to get the battle-worn finish I'm trying to achieve.
For those who are interested in techniques, what I do is paint solid colours on first then I apply Army Painter dark wash tone. Then I paint what are effectively highlights with the original colours and apply Army Painter light wash tone. To finish, I reapply a lightened version of each of the colours as a highlight.
Then it's a matter of picking out details, drybrushing silver on any metallic parts, and finally a coat of gloss varnish. After that it's time for decals and then matt varnish to seal.
