For the Motherland! part 4

More work continues on the rather dusty T34:

I've varnished the beast which has reduced the level of dust somewhat; I might re dust it and then seal it with pigment fixer. Other than that all I need to do is finish off some details (light, bits and bobs) and tidy up the tank riders (some minor chips here and there) and I'm done.
I'll post pictures of my completed work later on. In the mean time I'm desperately trying to build the Warlord games multi part plastics but I'm finding they are sapping my mojo; I'd much rather play with metals, even if they are limited in pose-ability.

Until next time...


  1. Nicely done, Really like the soldiers hitching a ride!

  2. Gotta say dude I think this is one of your best pieces of work looks awesome, just the right amount of weathering and the tank riders add a nice focal point too :)

    keep it up

  3. Cheers guys, I appreciate the comments. I've since varnished it without sealing the pigment with fixer so it's gotten a bit darker :( I'll need to re apply the dry mud me thinks.

  4. I think that this looks great, the heavy dusting works well with the T-34 imo. Shame to hear the issues with the varnish "cleaning" it up. I had the problem too, pigment fixer should solve your problem.
