beute T-34/76, WiP

After I while I'm back with some new in-progress shots of the Germans' used T-34, somewhere in the Kirovograd aread during 1943/44 winter time period. I focused on doing a freshly applied white wash without too many washed off paint effects etc., in contrary to the tendency we often observe whilst modellers build their winterized vehicles. It is a tendency that has been araising for the last couple of years but research show we do get different effects on real vehicles so why only focus on replicating a specific washed off effect? I decided to go the other way round and paint the vehicle in a good condition, just at the outbreak of the winter season. Below you can observe some progress. The paintjob was done so far with hair spray and tamiya X-2 white and Vallejo white shades. Why gloss paint? Because it gives that good glossy, hardened surface and you don't have to apply the glossy varnish to proceed well with filers or washes. More to follow shortly.
