    Decided to build the Trumpeter T-62 Mod. 1962 in Russian use that is in an overall Russian green colour.

    Nice choice!

    Beautiful tank and also will look good with some weathering.

    Tancred this version can be built as a vehicle in one of the show of arms the Soviets used in their regions, like Peague etc etc, do some research and you'll find this version in one of these 'missions' with a white cross on the turret aka of the Berlin 45 airidentification!

    Good choice and a good model ... only this version you are restricted to Russian Cold War version but read somwhere someone spotted a 62 model in Afghanistan ... Euro musing? Twisted Evil

    Decided to continue this one. Got a resin upgrade set (thanks Ivan) for the turret and fuel tanks and some of the boxes. Here's a little progress.

    Interesting subject. Sometimes a simple scheme can be just as nice!

    Tajjeb man!

    Enjoy this! I personally think that T55 and T62's are really fun to build and paint!
