T-34/76 (model 1940) build – Part 3:Painting

1 Comment

Primer: Tamiya “Fine Surface Primer” (light grey) spray can, applied to the hull and turret.

Base coats: Using most of the Mr.Hobby Russian Green modulation set. In all cases the paint was sprayed as a 1:2 mixture in Mr.Color leveling thinner.

  • The darkest colour (“RG shadow” CMC13) was sprayed over the entire model, to act as a dark base.
  • The next darkest (“RG CM base” CMC10) was sprayed over the bulk of the vehicle, save the deepest recesses.
  • “RG highlight 1” CMC11 was sprayed on the upper hull, the sides and top of the turret and the outside part of the wheels only.

In this case I am mostly using these paints because I like the colours and not that I want to achieve any pronounced colour gradients across the model surfaces.


  • Machine gun: Vallejo Model Color “Black” (70950)
  • Headlights: LifeColor “Gloss Silver” (LC74)
