India Republic Day


This kit was sent to me by someone who I look up to. And I dedicate this build to him.

After drooling over this kit for months. I got a surprise gift and boy was I pleased, the quality far surpasses any kit that has come out of the Zvezda stable.  Awesome detailing and crisp molding, the instruction manual was also well detailed.

I decided to build the Indian version of the T-90, which is minus the Shtora-1 Passive/active Protection system.  So havd to replace them with scratch built 'Kactus K-6' Bolted explosive reactive armour (ERA)

I have used mix and match Tamiya acrylic paints, decals were self made, so were a few accessories. T he base is made of Dental plaster and painted and washed to add detail.

Overall a highly satisfying build.

Wishing all a Happy Republic Day "Jai Hind"
