Carlos,

Your T55s look great  :-* - which colour did you use?

Thank-you for the links to the decals.
I got quite excited and added some to the shopping cart.
Then I saw the cost including shipping to Switzerland ouch.

I will consider carefully what I actually need. ;)

Standard Tamiya rattle can  TS-28 Olive Drab 2. Funnily enough, I just opened up the box to start on another one (going to open up the loader's hatch this time) and saw that Tamiya suggest TS-28. There's serendipity for you.

The dirtying up is down to Mig and Vallejo pigments.  I used to faff about doing Soviet Green but eventually came to the conclusion  that most olive greens are much of a muchness and weathering makes up for/ hides most of the differences.

Surprised that postage would be expensive from France to Switzerland. You are next door to each other after all.

No idea what the postage is but, I-94 have some Vietnamese stars for aircraft in pack MI-106.

https://www.minibits.net/i-94-decals/miscellaneous/

I have them somewhere, I will see if I can dig them out.

The odd number forms might be interesting to render.
Apologies for the delay.

MI-106 next to an Empress T55.

I have decided to join the Build Something Competition.

This year the theme will be difficult terrain. I have decided to do a tile for a battle on a steep wooded hillside. There were several battles in the Vietnam war that took place on steep wooded hillsides.
I made a wooden easel which holds XPS tiles. I have then started to sculpt the XPS foam. I think this has potential to make an interesting competition piece.


You can follow the project here.

Now that's an interesting idea.

That makes sense now

On the larger screen you can see the trenches (on the other machine they looked like raised blobs).
