This is my T-62 built as a Syrian machine used during the Yom Kippur War with Israel in 1973.

The kit is from Trumpeter, and was lots of fun to build. I understand there are problems with the contours of the hatches, and some other things, but whatever.

The kit was a lot of fun to build, and detail. I added by own plumbing for the spare tanks and replaced grab handles with wire. Some day I'll add a figure.

Paints are Model MAster Acrylics, and all weathering was done with washes. About four or five different shades. I also utilized some pencil graphite on edges and scratches, as well as baking soda for sandy silt textures.

Please excuse the weird colors, this was photographed indoors under two junky lamps.

Very convincing weathering and textures, the cast metal turret particularly. Superb.
