Esci 1/72 T62 M MBT **second page** (By Erhan Atalay)

Hi dear friends,
Let's continue to my T-62. Do you remember this tank ??
click please the review page :http://miniafv.....esci-172-t62-m-mbt-review-by-erhan.html

Firstly we are looking the wheels. ESCI had made a bad molding. Wrong patterns and one piece wheels.. terrible ..I changed the with PST T-55 wheels. From left to right ESCI and PST wheels.

Turret surface is very flat. I wanted to give the casting effect.

I used to Mr.Surfacer 500 for casting effect..

before I applied on the surface with brush, after  gave texture with vertical brush strokes..

Installation of the lower body and wheel ..

Sprocket and tensioning wheel was replaced with PST T-55 parts.

satisfactory results..

I used the ESCI tracks

Some parts made ​​from wire

Comparison with T-55 (PST)  turret ..

ready for paint..

after gray primer (with Vallejo surface primer)

and after painting by freehand airbrush
Yellow : 71031 Vallejo Middle Stone mixed with a little white
Green : Gunze H303
