T-34/76 - construction done

There was a controversy concerning the cylindrical fuel drums, as this model (early 1943) was most likely equipped with two box-type fuel cells in the rear. However, it seems there were a few batches upgraded later in '43 with this type of fuel drums.

Mickey Mouse looks very nice as it is but it's going to look awesome once you've painted and placed it in a diorama :)
I will be closely monitoring your work on this one because I intend to build and paint a T34 (85 or 100) very soon ... after I'll finish my first model (STUG III).

I'm also intrigued (in the good way) about your paintings which are very good (taking in consideration that you are not paint-brushing them).

Is it possible to give some tips and tricks (along with a list of materials (vopseluri de baza/grund/diluati folosite de tine?)

Thanks for the comment, I'm glad you like it :-)
I use exclusively Vallejo - Model Color paints, since I was quite happy with them from the beginning. After assembly I clean the model with a Q-tip soaked in window cleaning solution (the main surfaces). After that I apply a layer of Tamiya white primer. This is critical in brush painting, as the first paint layer will not slip on the plastic surface. Then I paint the first layer (mixed 50% with demineralised water). After 24h I apply the second layer. After well dry, a third layer and the fourth. Most times these are enough for a good coverage. I use only natural hair brushes. The most important thing is not to return with your brush on a wet surface.

Folosesc exclusiv vopseluri Vallejo - Model Color; fiind foarte satisfacut inca de la inceput, nu am incercat si alte marci. Dupa ce termin asamblarea, curat modelul (pe unde se poate) cu un betigas pentru urechi imbibat in solutie de curatat geamuri. Dupa uscare urmeaza un strat subtire de grund Tamiya, esential in vopsitul la pensula, pentru ca astfel primul strat nu va "aluneca" pe plastic. Urmeaza primul strat de vopsea (50% amestec cu apa demineralizata). Dupa 24h (cred ca merge si mai putin), dau al doilea strat. Alte 24 de ore; al treilea, apoi al patrulea. De obicei sint suficiente. Pentru vopsit folosesc doar pensule cu par natural. Cel mai important sfat e sa nu revii asupra suprafetelor vopsite inainte de uscarea lor.
