T72 looks amazing, it's got to be better engineered than this lol

This build is really moving along. Great work, Adam.

Jake, I'm waiting for the T72 myself, and I'm thinking I'll wait for the Waltherson's edition. That's supposed to be out this year, and is supposed to have all new controls so we'll see how they stack up. I was also thinking about the Trumpeter T-72 kit to use the details on the Waltherson's tank, but that might get expensive.

Thanks guys!

Used Japanese navy green, quite a bright green but it'll tone down well with washes etc.

Managed to get the elmod working with help from Brel - thank you! Saved a frustrated tanker.

Upgrading the servo recoil tonight as quite frankly, it's appalling.

It's looking really great Adam. I did get myself a t-72, but it's in 1/72nd scale. Better than nothing, I guess.

That's all I get to see? Tease.

Looks very smooth. Great sounds. Turret rotation seems smooth and steady, but what was the click all about? The recoil was just right, and very believable. The effect you got with the canvass mantlet cover during elevation is very impressive. I'd really like to see more video. She looks fantastic. How does the suspension perform?

Chip time!

Took bloody ages but I think it looks ok?

Got to tone down the colours now with a filter wash and then finish with a pin wash and pigments.

US modern vehicle wash from mig/ammo :D

Just finished it and it's drying in the garden.

Tracks painted and washed too.

Pigments to go.
