Hello comrades.
I've finished my entry for our fight against the capitalists.
This 1/35 BA-3, from Eastern express, is build oob except for the door handles, which I made from metal wire. It's painted in Humbrol # 30 enamel, washed and then drybrushed with Humbrol # 93 enamel. I dusted it with MIG's pigments.

Yes, I saw the red on this vehicle
The BA-3 kit is a good choice, I love it. Also the humbrol 30 is a good choice for this Rusian green. I was wondering in these days if it suits for may T-35. I like the dust..
Great work my friend. And thanks for the show.

Thank you for your kind words Wampum.
I just noticed, that the red stars look kind of blurry in the pictures, they are actually sharp edged.

Great Job Jesper, I like your BA-3, your dusting effect is perfect, very realistic and consistant. I'm wondering about the headlights, are those covers on them?
It looks like Eastern Express has done a decent job with details on this, any problem with the build? I've been wanting to get this model for a while now. Now that I've seen your finished product I think I'll pick one up.

Thanks for sharing

The BA-3 looks like a top job to me Comrade,straight off a dusty summer steppe.
The painting and weathering are particularly effective.
Cheers October.

Thank you for your kind words comrades.

Slug: Ups I forgot the headlights. It is a fairly good kit. The fitting of the doors are not to good, but nothing major. The doors have no handles, so you have to make them your self.
The soft vinyl tires are awefull. The seamlines are almost impossible to remove. If you can get resin replacement tires. GET THEM.

Sticky: It's a shame about the "one tire short" I have no idea why they don't supply that second spare tire.

Nope. I read a review of this kit on an on-line store. All the BA-3 kits are one tire short.
