All of the forces for the Yom Kippur War are now painted to a nice wargames standard. So I am revisiting them a few at a time to perform an 'upgrade' to their paint job. This essentially consists of painting lenses and applying chipping and better weathering. I am impressed with the efforts of Greg at the Fawcett Avenue Conscripts with his Golani Yom Kippur project and always blown away with the work of Tim Rich a.k.a. Tacobat when it comes to painting modern armour. The lense thing is a something that I think will get better with practice, but I've given it a shot on these T-55s.
|The best lenses are the ones that are out of focus...|
|A front on of the T-55 with the best lenses - except I can see I forgot to paint the ones in the hull!|
|A side on view of the boss T-55 showing the effects of the side weathering.|
|Somewhat dull in comparison. Definite improvement I think.|
