Ingo F Thank you Dan.

James C Nice job on the camo. How was the kit?
20. March at 23:18:49
Ingo F Thank you James. This kit is straightforward and fast to build. The most time consuming are the Orochi tracks that are very good. In my opinion the advantages of this kit are the tracks, the possibility to build the canadian C2 version of the Leo and the nice and detailed figure.
Unfortunately there are also some disadvantages in this kit. First of all the instruction. There are some missing informations, also again there is no information about the count of the tracks per side. The most disappointing part of the instruction is the painting part. The painting instruction shows the tank only from three sides: front, rear and left side. There is no right side and top down view on the camo. I mean its not like the boths sides of the tank got an mirror camo sheme. :-/
This view is only good it you are building the italian KFOR vehicles that is painted in overall green.
I had to search for an instruction from another kit like, Revell or MENG. Found and used the last one.
The next disadvantage of this kit is that Takom do not provide clear parts for the turret and hull periscopes. This parts are molded in plastic. The only clear parts that you get are the headlights.
Another disadvantage of this kit is that you have to glue the shock mounts on the turret and this is not even the bad part of it. There are no markings provided on the turret where to glue this shock mounts. You have to compare it to the instruction. Ok, at the end this mounts wont be visible because of the addon plates on the turret.
If you have to decide which one to buy: the Takom or the MENG one, i would say go for the MENG Kit. :)

James C Thanks for the info and observations mate. I already have this this same A5/C2 boxing from Takom in the stash, but as yet have not attempted a Takom kit. You've done a great job on the assembly and painting and looks like it should weather nicely. ;)

Ingo F Thank you James! This will be my first model where i am going to use the oils from Abteilung 502. OK actualy the second one as i am going to test it out on an old model first. :D
21. March at 20:46:12
James C I tried using oils (dot filtering) on my M48. Turned out to be a bit of a disaster haha! I've been hesitant to try them again. Hope you have better luck than I did. ;)
21. March at 20:56:00
Ingo F Haha i hope so. :D What varnish did you use before applying the oils? Satin or gloss. I have read somewhere that you need to use the satin varnish for the work with oils.
21. March at 21:26:48
James C Id used a standard gloss, but I think my problem was applying too much oil paint in the dots right from the start. Next time I'll use very little and build it up more gradually.

Ingo F Thank you James. Yeah using PE parts for engine grills and covers is a good idea but i dont like to use them to connect two plastic parts as i am always afraid that they could easily break off.
22. February at 12:11:52
Ingo F Painted the frame in base color and assembled both cabines. Could not find many pictures of the cabin so i had to use what i found and Przemek Przybulewski his BM-30 build for reference. I hope he do not mind it. :D Trumpeter did not provide any information about the inside colors of the cabin, only the base color.
The interior of the cabin and some parts on the frame looks different if you compare the Trumpeter and MENG kits with eachother. The oxygen tanks are facing different directions in both kits also the cabeling is different. Trumpeter kit have no fire extinguisher in the driver cabin.
I am not sure which kit is accurate, maybe both are but each manufacturer looked at the different version of this vehicle. We all know how russian and soviet vehicles may vary. :)
Next step will be masking of the windows and primin the cabines black.
28. February at 21:16:25
James C It's disappointing when kit manufacturers don't give any references or suggestions for colours to use for interiors and chassis etc.
Even if it's not 100% correct, you look to have chosen well. Looking good mate. ;)
28. February at 21:23:14
Dan M Nice, starting to show some color! About the interior I was always under the impression that the usual color is white (maybe a very dirty white) but then I searched online and you are right with that color as can be seen here: [img1].html
01. March at 09:44:47
Ingo F Thank you James and Dan!
@James: Yes James thats disappointing but hey searching for references is part of the hobby too. :D
@Dan: I think the interior color depends on the army the vehicle is used by.
01. March at 14:13:01
Ingo F Have not posted an update for a long time now. :) The build is completed and as you can see only the rocket pods needs to be painted. I decided to go for an overall green as it is my favorite color on russian vehicles and tanks.
18. March at 21:49:15
Dan M The beast is starting to take shape! What color did you use ? Maybe it's the light but it looks kind of like a khaki or tan
19. March at 19:52:34
Ingo F Hey Dan. Its Green Khaki from MIG - MIG-056.
