Wow ok were 2 weeks in and I have my first completed Shelf of doom model!
ItS the 1/72 Sukhoi SU-7 Fitter.
The nose looked abit too bare so I found a decal with a bird of prey letting go of a bomb.
I'm having issues with copying bb codes using my phone with flickr so I will post pics tomorrow.

Nice work Mav. Gotta love an old school speed machine like an Su-7. :lol:

I have painted the wheel rims etc. and coated the whole tank in Klear ready for the decals & some weathering.

Image

I've also started work on the tracks. Must admit not having a clue here so I am giving them a heavy rust wash.

Image

I plan to apply a heavy dry brushing with a steel colour and then a very light dry brush with some silver to suggest wear.
Once that is all dry I will fit the tracks and weather the whole vehicle. Does that sound like a plan?

Looking good OT!
I did a small portion of work on the Horton last night but had to stop as I just wasn't in the mood.

Yes I find that the mojo is definitely required when modelling. So many other distractions these days.
Fortunately this little Panzer has my juices flowing. :lol:

Kudos must go to Tamiya as those 30 year plus decals behaved perfectly.
I just need to dirty this up now, paint the commander and maybe add a bit of stowage (if I can find some). 8-)
And sort out that gun barrel. :roll:
