Comrades
Here are my pics of "Helga" This model of the DML ISU-122 is named after my lovely "wife" :-) :-) It's my first attempt in years of adding mud to a model I think it's ok I guess it could be better
For the mud I applied Testors red putty thinned with liquid glue to areas of suspension I painted the mud areas with Floquil rail brown Is there a gallery for us?

Lord Kenworth

This one looks good. It's Russian and its beefy

Color variations are evident in the overhead view showing off the preshade, and your spot lightening in the center panels. The wash on the welds also adds some color variation for the eye. I know you put a lot of time into this one. Good job sir.

General Zod,I knee knee.May I suggest thinning your rail brown,and feathering up from the fender level,to a thin layer of dust on the superstructure?The upper area looks markedly cleaner than the lower area.If Helga was running through so much mud,I think there would be some overslop.
looks verie good so far.

Hello Zod! Nice green thing u got there. I think you are moving in the right direction with your weathering - but like carl said don't be afraid to get her dirty while having fun - you can always hose her off later! :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)


Looking good!
