Now that the assembly of the Eastern Express and the UM SU-122 models is complete we move onto painting, and weathering appropriate to the planned display base. Before we grab the airbrush we of course need to sit and think about the color scheme we'll do, and the weathering; both of which are dependent on the time of year and weather (snow, mud or dry dust?). The unit marking we wish to use is based on the time period or battle we'll represent.

At this time I am working on the building of two Soviet SU-122 tank models in 1/72 scale. One model is from UM company and the other from Eastern Express company, the idea is to compare the two models for accuracy and ease of building.. The article is in three parts: an in-the-box review, a part on assembly and detailing, and a final part on painting and markings. I hope you enjoy them! Feel free to make any comments, suggestions!
