Here is one of my painting jobs. Three boxes of Su 85M’s!
However, this unfortunately leaves a lot of excess. But some of these extra bits are very useful.
My only comment I’ll make is the finished tank is very, very light. So I suggest super glueing in fishing weights or something to get them a little more tangibility.
For the blizzard cam I leave them white. Then brush on cold water all over. Then using a big worn out brush (one that you use to use for dry brushing but now looks like a broomstick) I dab on the russian green. Do this all over. Dry the miniature then do it again for a more solid effect level. Dry the miniature then dab on off white.
As usual I use three tones of brown over the tracks with a sand dry brush for a highlight. I had to use plenty of water to get the paint between the mud guards and the tracks. Splash some very watery dark brown over the lower parts of the hull to give a wading line if you like.
I highlighted the green with the early war soviet green and mixed sand in with tan to get the pop out of the cam tanks. With the blizzard ones I dry brushed lightly over the big angles to bring out the tanks shape from the busy cam.
I was very happy with the build and paint of the SU-85M.
