Hi Cagkan,

I can only agree with everybody else - that's a clean build with improvements and camouflage job and great weathering, figures and little vignette. Nice work!

Jerry



Thank you for all of your kind words!

Awesome build and paint job, it's not a tank that we see often, very refreshing !

What is the large tub-like object in the bustle rack?



Hi, this is the deep wading (fording) device.

Excellent work! Thank you for sharing, Cagkan.
What did you use to do the ground display (roadblocks, etc.)?



I used a foamboard and 4 mm cork sheet for the base, then I applied AK Interactive's asphalt product. Barriers are from the Meng's Set. Vegatations are from Green Stuff World and some of them are homemade, also I used cat litter and small rocks.

All the dust and weathering are both AK's and Ammo of Mig's enamels/pigments..

Hi Olivier, it is very nice to hear that my model will be an inspiration for a master modeler like you, I'm honored.

I used Gunze H303 and H310 for the two main camouflage colors. Vallejo Model Air's Black Grey and Model Color's Off-White for the black and white stripes. I used 4 or 5 different green colors for the skirt armor blocks.



Hi Cagkan, you made me blush
Thank you for the answer.

Hi Cagkan, this is a great model of a great tank.
You did a nice paintjob and nice base, too.
I really like the K2, it very modern looking and it is also related to the Turkish ALTAY, it shares several parts with
ALTAY (of which already some prototypes are running).
Thanks for showing!
Stephan



Thank you Stephan.

Yes it is related to Altay, they have almost identical hull but Altay has 7 roadwheels and about a meter longer. Turrets are completely different.

I have the same kit in the stash. Yours will be a source of inspiration when I start mine.
Could you tell more about the paints you used?

Very nicely done. I see you replaced the stowage bin latches. Did you take them off of a K1A1 kit?



Thanks a lot. I just cut the latches carefully, thinned them about half a milimeter with a sharp blade, and glued them back.

This is the 1/35 Academy kit with some scratch built improvements, Orange Hobby antennas and Valkyrie Miniature ROK Army Tank Crew figure set.

I won 2nd place of modern afvs masters category in 11th FNSS Plastic Battle Armor Modeling Show with this model.

The kit was pretty good, lack of clear parts and antennas may be frustrating. Space between engine deck and the turret basket could be tricky.
