I was given an Armourfast T-34 (1943) a year or so ago for nothing, and as I recently got a Badger 200 airbrush, I thought I' try to see how small I could go with German mottle camo, so I decided to build the T-34 as a caputered version circa Kursk 1943 and based on photos I have seen. I decided not to go all the way and replicate the SS ones with side skirts, so I just added a fe extra boxes on the right hand side. Overall I was impressed with the airbrush and my first airbrushing since Jim Callaghan was PM!

I have had this same air brush for a 40 of years. You can even get a finer line camouflage by purchasing the fine needle for the Model 200. Great air brush for small scale.

By the way, nice T-34 build.

Nice! I have the Badger 100 LG. As Steve190 said, the fine needle works well too.
