Russian Armored Car


by John Daniel


I repainted this model of a Russian armored car so many times as it was my exercise in color modulation.


I used a combination of Vallejo and Life Color


The jerry can bracket was built out of brass wire and solder and the bed rolls were from Tamiya’s 1/48 gaz truck.


The vehicle was then weathered using Mig Pigments European Dust and Russian Earth.


Russian Armored CarThe Corduroy road was scratch-built from 1/8 in dowels. To create the bark effect, I dragged a razor saw over the dowels.


Tamiya decals were used for the signs. They were applied to plastic card stock, then glued to wooden back
