The figure is the MIG Instructing Iraqi Commander and the tanker is an old metal reference from Puchala (I think)

Bronco Y-531C is a very enjoyable model, a bit delicate to build: structure is incredibly thin, it seems a papercraft model!
A lot of details, I never studied this subject and build it out of the box; I was amazed discovering it catch the real thing perfectly.
Probably light guards could be thinner, but the 9 pieces plastic assembly is enough for me.

Great job on this armor, sir! Weathering looks great and I love the appearance of metal coming through on the treads.

It's a simple "drybrush" with a very soft pencil (dark iron) and Humbrol matt 56 aluminium (light metal)

For Iraqi sand my "recipe" is:
Humbrol Matt 121 Pale Stone over Matt 29 Dark Earth.
Washes&Drybrushes with oils.
Sorry for my old school Verlinden Style painting. :sarcasm:

I don't think a western style sign could be appropriate, but I have no idea how an Iraqi (or Chinese) sign should look like :meh:
Any idea??

Very nice Francesco! I still love the so called "old" school, much better than most called "new", with flattened "migged" models.

Well done.

In military modelling, both Verlinden's Way and latest Mig style are sometimes abused.
These could be only hints and tips; you need to find your way painting your model: a compromise between results, your hard work and fun.
Did you notice I didn't mention history accuracy? Real tanks are so ugly!  :razz:
