Laffly V 15 T ICM 1/35

Post by Milan Mynar » 05 Dec 2021 18:58

I bought this kit of the interesting French artillery tractor. I always liked this vehicle with small wheels in front of the bumper. The ICM made kit looks good and easy to build. Shortly I´ll start building this one.

There is even a template that allows you to set the rear axles correctly.

After the matt varnish dried, I gradually applied dots of oil paints to the surface. Which I later washed off with thinner to get the color of the base shade to fade.

Today I made the last adjustments, I sprayed the pigments and wiped them with a brush. I got the dust effect. I finally glued the windshields. I  declare the model finished.
