    Hey Lads!
    I started my second try on 1/72 scale. this time i choose a russian T-72. this tank is my favorite in T series along with T-90. actually T-90s designed from T-72s. here is the T-72 with Stallinium armor and straight to gulag gun before paint pictures.

    this modelcollect kit has very high standards. very nice molding, high details and enough amount of PE. even only turret have about 30 parts. I really suggest this brand for modern era russian armors. their WWII german kits are not excelent as thoose ruski kits. and have so so quality for light skin wheelled AFVs.

    so then i painted it with ruski green and added some oil colors yellow-white-burnt sienna-green to ERA armor modules. modelcollect doesn't have enough quality for decals. decals itself is not so bad but information given for decals is almost none. and they put same decal sheet to every kit :D so the decals i appliad to the kit is totally made-up story by me :D

    I havent done any weathering for machine gun yet. Next step is preparing a small base, very small, and doing pigment works according to minimalist base

    Cheers! Have Fun

    I am glad someone else feels these kits are good. I thoroughly enjoyed building one.

    Thank you Bob, It has very nice molding. It comes to life with weathering very easily
    building modelcollect is very enjoyable, that is my favorite brand for russian armor. i also suggest S-Model and Flyhawk Model. S-Model says "easy built" but definately it isn't :)
    Thank you Ian
