Pegasus WWII Russian BT-7 1/72

Hello all,

Looks like regular service is back on the blogging front. This is another from the built up stash. The kit comes as a pair and is only about 12 or so bits which means a cracking job for war gamers and reasonable enough for a diorama. The barrel has been replaced with a metal one.
This one got a spray with Humbrol 86 olive.

The whole tank got a wash with pro modeller dirt.

The rear got the exhaust pipes drilled out and "smoked" look.

The kit does not come with a decals so some MiG ones came out of the spares box.

The tracks got a quick blast with the airbrush for a bit of weathering.

A quick dusting with Tamiya weathering powder finished it off.
This is a pair so expect its mate to be along soon!

PLEASE CLICK ON IMAGES FOR A LARGER VIEW AND ANY COMMENTS MORE THAN WELCOME.

Cheers for looking,    Rich.

Lovely. I've managed to resist this one so far, as I already have quite a few BTs from other manufacturers...

Super work Rich. The BT's were a classy looking machine and you have done well.
