Our club in Puerto Rico (Borinqueneers) started a workshop of 1-2 meetings to complete a model select by us. For this first time we decided the 1:48 Tamiya BA-64B. This is a light armored vehicle used by the russian during WWII and later by other countries up to the 60s!

Well this is my efforst on that day. Just one Sprue as you can see in the picture, building the model out of the box takes around 1 and half hour to 4 hours between the members. 


Here my results, this vehicle its full of possibilities from stand alone to diorama material.

Instead of giving the green color, I decided to use another route, using a more tan like base color. I want to built the green in thin layers around that tan base.

For the chassis, I gave a tamiya earth color wash and while the paints was wet, I added a mix of european and light earth pigments, they will dry and left a very convincing finish.

Later I added more white to the green base for some modulation.
