Soviet Union, 1942-1946.
- Paint chips were simulated using LifeColor “4BO Var.” (UA239) and Vallejo Model Color “German Camouflage Black Brown” (70822), applied with a sponge or brush.
- The exhaust was painted with the various colours of the LifeColor rust set.
- The entire vehicle was washed with a dilute mixture of Winsor & Newton “Raw Umber” and “Lamp Black” oil paints in enamel thinner – the excess being cleaned up with a dry brush or cotton bud.
- Wilder “Olive Drab” (LS34) oil paint was used on various high points of the vehicle.
- AMMO Oilbrusher “Starship Bay Sludge” (A.MIG-3532) or “Starship Filth” (A.MIG-3513) were worked into various recesses, the excess being cleaned away.
- To the vertical and sloping sides of the hull dots of AMMO Oilbrusher “Starship Filth”, “Starship Bay Sludge” and “Rust” were added. Then, using a flat brush, the oil paint was drawn down the side to simulate streaks. After drying, this process was repeated multiple times.
- Winsor & Newton “Burnt Umber” was painted onto the wooden handles of the tools and then wiped in one direction with a cotton bud to simulate wood grain.
- Everything was then sprayed with a 1:2 mixture of Mr.Color “Flat Clear” (182) and Mr.Color Leveling Thinner.
- A mixture of medium coloured pigments were brushed onto wheels and the top surface of the hull (underneath the turret) and fixed in place by applying a 1:1 mixture of AMMO “Pigment Fixer” (A.MIG-3000) and enamel thinners by brush.
- The same pigment mixture was turned into a paste by adding water and Vallejo “Matt Medium” and then flicked from the end of a brush to the underside of the hull to represent dirt splatter.
- The machine gun and metal tools were brushed with AK Interactive “Dark Steel” (AK086) pigment.

- Prior to assembling the hull, I had to do a basic paint and weathering on the interior – so, a white colour, followed by some chipping, brown oil wash and depositing of earth pigments on the floor.
- I plan to paint the chassis\engine and hull separately, before joining them.
“The BA-64 was the first Soviet all-wheel drive armored car and would remain the only vehicle of this class in service during the war, with a production of up to 9110 armored vehicles from April 1942 to early 1946.”
