The appearance of the new trumpeter T-62 kits was a good opportunity to start modelling modern AFV for a change. I also found a interesting configuration for this tank with additional grill armor around the hull and turrets back, such vehicles were operating in South Osetia during the recent conflict between Russia and Georgia in 2008.
The painting scheme is also interesting, a trinonal Russian Federation Forces camouflage consisting of pale green, black and grey blotches. This should be a interesting and quick project and most of all something really different for me. I already bought the T-62 mod. 1972 kit, now some T 72 type tracks from friul and I'm ready to start.
