Scrapyard T-72A model 1978

I've been quiet on the blog lately, busy with a few projects. Here's one of them, a scrapyard vehicle converted from Revell's T-72M1 kit.

The engine deck cover and turned metal barrel are from Zedval.

The glacis plate is a resin coy of a scratch-built item to replace that of the T-72M1 kit.

The turret is  based on a modified one I'd corrected for the Revell kit.

Time for another T-72

This one will be a little different from the others I've built so far!

I cut this front fender section from the Revell kit and added the mudguard hinges.

Idler wheel mount.

1/72 T-90A : Part 5

I've been doing a bit more on the T-90A recently.

Left side turret stowage bin
The left side stowage bin. I used the top plate from Modelcollect and the front section from the Revell piece. Both kits lack the details on the side so I scratchbuilt these.

Gunner hatch 'nadboi' anti-radiation cladding

The Revell mantlet is soft and doesn't capture the folds of the real thing. I used a resin copy of one I'd scratchbuilt for a T-72 and further modified it with MagicSculp putty.

1/72 T-64B

I've been working on Modelcollect's T-64B. I'd planned to refine some of the detail around the driver's hatch but found it easier to replace it.

The sand coloured details are from Revell's T-72M1 kit.

Along with the Modelcollect part.
