The Children of Doom

Or, The Shelf of Doom. Since most of us intend to finish these someday....well, you know.

I also have a couple cats and I have not had them ever attempt to jump on my shelves or knock down any models. Mine seem so well behaved compared to some of the experiences you guys have had. Anyway...

Get that beastie done Carlos! Once I finish a couple more models, I'll be starting my own Russian arms build up thanks to this magnificent model...

Thanks guys.

Tom, I’m with you on looking forward to getting some dirt on this beast!

Mark, between this last cat, and another male cat that we used to have who like to “spray” in my garage work area marking his territory, in spite of being fixed, in addition to his high ground antics on my shelves, we are done with cats in our home. :nono: But I’m glad to hear that this T-72 is inspiring you to build more Russian armor. :wink:

This afternoon I spent mixing up some concoctions of pigments and then adding some water to slather the stuff on for a nice muddy look. I’m not too keen on the shade, but it looks okay.

Looks great! Man I really like the looks of this tank - super low profile.
Thanks,

Thanks John. The T-72 may be a death trap on the battlefield, but it sure does look pretty badass.

Well, I finally got all the parts glued where they should be. And most everything painted properly. Just need one more weathering session and then
paint and add the crew figures whenever they arrive.

But after at least 18 years, this thing is at the finish line…
