Trumpeter 1/72 JS-3 Stalin, **continue** (By Erhan)

Let's continue to Stalin. Do you remember ? (first page http://miniafv.js-3-stalin-help-me.)

Now painting time. First try about paint. Vallejo "sand" too yellow and dark. Mix % 50 white.. You can see that color the upper and the following pictures. I don't like..

Burak Özdil sent me paint from Istanbul. Model Master "sand" . Nice color for Stalin. You can see this color below.

A little paint chips...

Scratches on the body...

adding towing cable..
