The resin parts were washed to remove any oily residues.
I decided to paint them in different colours, mainly to be able to differentiate the different tank models from each other.
BT-5 before painting…
The BT-5 was painted with Vallejo 978 Military Green and given a black wash. Wheel-rims black, tracks Citadel Tin Bitz with a highlight of Citadel Gun Metal. The green turned out to be far to dark, but that was partly rectified by a generous dose of pigments, MIG P028 Europe Dust and P232 Dry Mud. MIG Black pigment to simulate soot.
I have still much to learn about pigments, but they sure are fun to play with.
The the BT-7 was painted with Formula P3 Traitor Green with a wash of black. Otherwise as above, but with less pigments. I'm very satisfied with the colour of this one.
Now, all they have to do is to survive their clash with the nazi aggressors. We’ll see…
