not my fairy tale or the T-80 in 72nd scale

After the T-80BV, I got from my daughter to make the T-80B from Modelcollect. It was supposed to be a model glued together with my daughter 🙂 with my little participation (so she herself did not choose this model 🙂). However, it turned out that this model is too demanding and had to "finish" it myself... such a life 😉 I'll write right away that the scale is not mine and my last assembled 72nd scale mode was Abrams from ESCI when I was in primary school, apparently, as part of the Apache diorama - then I was compulsively gluing planes 😉... therefore I am asking for a lenient penalty for mistakes. Of course, I tried to replace what I could, but I know about the shortcomings that can still be fixed. I plan to add a diorama to this model and put it in some kind of "showcase" so that there is not too much dust. My plan for the diorama is pacifist 🙂, or rather a tank on the lush grass with tankers picking flowers😄 this is finally a girl's gift 🙂 Below are the effects without diorama.


improved tower texture- tamiya putty,

added turret and hull welds,

improved infrared illuminator,

added wires on the tower,

modified NSVT containers,

improved NSVT,

antenna from needles,

blue foil periscopes

and maybe a few more small things

Paints and weathering:

- oil paints - pigments AK, Vallejo and Ammo - remover AK, AmmoMIG, Tamiya

As always, enjoy your viewing.
