Title: KV II (well, it is said it's a KV II...)
Post by: draken35 on February 21, 2016, 10:58:08 AM
I received that "Deform" kit from my friend Dominique Jadoul, and build it in less than one hour. No glue needed, but I used some in some locations to reinforce the ensemble.

Today, I airbrushed the primer.

I have also prepared a figure. Originally, she's an Ameriacn pin-up from the MB box. Sweet figures but the joint between head/body, arms/body and left leg/right leg is not perfect and needed some Mr Surfacer that I have to sand now.

To give to that pretty woman a look more Soviet, I replaced the Ameriacn helmet by a Russian tankist one; the US machinegun by a Russian one. My goal is not to be realist here...

To be noted that this figure is a little bit more "hot" than the illustration of the box: she wears no "bra"...  :-green

Primer airbrushed on my pin-up. Minor corrections needed as indicated but also on back of the helmet (a littl ebit of flash to remove).

Anyway, do you have suggestions on what slavic firstname she can own: Tatiana? Valentina? Iana? Or whatever else...

Irina is finished; it just remains to paint her weapon.
I've used oil paints of the acrylic bases. As I'm not a figurinist, I'm quite glad with the result.

The KV2 progressed too: painting of the wheels and traks, then weathering with a mix of Rust and Gun Metal; gloss varnish airbrushed and decals applied

Thank you Scott!

I was indeed bothered with the empty space between Irina and the KV II. The flag is the best solution I've found...
