Years ago I was helping judge an IPMS Regional contest here in the States and a co-judge said that armor wasn't all that hard to paint :-eek. The rest of us set him straight as best we could, but it would do that fellow good to see all the steps you're doing to make this KV look realistic. Maybe then he'd understand!

Thank you mates!

What to say about the building and painting of a tank? Well... It's just different from an aircraft, but not so simple if you wish your build will not be considered as a toy...

After the KV-1, I will build a 1/35 Staghound. The work was begun and you'll see that it's not really a piece of cake.

If you remember the begin of my painting phase, I used some Tamiya pigments.

But, due to the use of varnish, those pigments simply disappeared... OK, I'm always learning, now I know that it's a phase to do later...

...Like just now, just before weathering...
