Finally the basecoat is over. I used gunze 423 rlm83 dark green lightened with gunze middle stone over black and white primer. As it is i think i’ve nailed the cold war russian green just fine, BUT with the subsequent weathering this is not gonna remain this way…. Anyway, it’s time to install the last couple of parts and detail paint the highlights with paintbrush.

Copper towing wires are of kit’s, rest of the plumbing as well as the milliput tarp at the back the turret is my handiwork.
