As the man at the tank factory said, 'you can have it in any colour, as long as it's green'….

Thanks for the comments. The base green is from Mr Hobby and from their Mr Colour lacquer acrylic range. The colour is Russian Green (2) paint #136. They describe it as 'USSR tank late war'. I don't use it as is, but lighten for scale using a buff or middle stone. No exact measures, I just do it by eye.

I so much want a BA64 parked in my driveway. With a maxim in the ring!

Not sure a maxim would fit. That aperture was pretty narrow. You might have to stick with a DT.

Yeah, it's certainly a garage upgrade

Some of the nicest Russian armour I've seen.

No doubt it will be more reliable than my 2011 Mazda 3 which broke down again this morning.

Excellent painting!

Can I sign up for a BA-64 with a Maksim too? :D
