Great weathering, and those decals look brilliant.

Too much tonal contrast, sorry - you made it look like a toy. Much too light a colour, and too much shading. Nice work of art, but nothing like the real thing.

Doug, interesting comments, if painted as the real thing in 1/72 it would be bland and one dimmentional,just look at the real things when on display and running around at Bovington and the Saumur. Interestingly, if i painted plain "Russian" green ( and we wont go down that particular rabbit hole) without any fading and just the dust ( as scale scratches would not be visible either) it would receive the same comment. Like most AFV modelling, it is an Art and it is interpreted, i cant say i've seen anything in the last couple of years throughout the 1/35 modelling scene that accurately reflects a "real" finish. Fortunately, its not what the majority of the "public" want. I appreciate there is a small call for "realistic" finishes but even then its not an exact science due to the scaling effects with colours etc. Appreciate your comment, room for us all here.

I think the figures have some shine to them but the vehicle effects are spot on - nice work from a 1/72 guy.

As the proud owner, I can say that Neil has done a fantastic job. The photos really don't do it justice. It is a fantastic piece of work.

The model is from a Ukrainian company that has since gone out of business.
