Now back on land and with bigger scale, it time for abit of odd camo from the Russian Tank Biathlon!
Firstly there not really much choice T-72B3 with only Trumpeter and Meng that i know have that specific model but i use the Mod 1990 mainly because it available on my local hobby shop and it look close enough anyway to B3.
I have not much problem building it except when it come to Photo-etch since there alot to apply if you decide to use all the slip disc(?) especially the turret. However the most problematic for me is the log holder at the rear of the tank since it quite finicky to assemble and can easily rip off thanks to small surface area of the mounts.
Oh and this one missing the parts number for some reason
For tracks, the plan was to replace the stock tracks with Trumpeter workable track but somehow a certain online shop give the non-workable ones instead. Since i can’t be arse to ask them for replacement, i use it anyway since it nicer looking and don’t need to assemble the track horn on each of them!
As for the camo i refer to this specific camo from this 2016 regional stage mainly because i like the blue color but i want other color to mix in.

- Modo MK-13 White Surfacer – Camo
- Mr.Color 34 Sky Blue – Camo
- Warpaints Matt Black – Camo
- Tamiya XF-85 Olive Green – Lower hull
