Saurons eye - S-300V 9S32 "Grill pan" fire control radar

Here we go:

Just the upper runs. Track skirts follow soon. I'll keep wheels and lower track runs off to easy painting.

Track links are illfitting around the drive sprockets. The horn is to long and has to be sanded down as far as possible without completly eleminating the upper crossbar. The outer rim of rubber pads of the links interferes with the inner rim of the drive sprockest. Just cut off a bit of the edge of the rubber pads. Fit of the idler wheel to the axle is a bit wobbly. Watch for alignment while the glue cures.

 

Thats it so far. Used the tracks and the wheel wells to test some painting techniques. Drying time is on the helm now, so there are no more daily updates for the next time.

Sideskirts and mudflaps. One skirt fitted perfectly. The other one had to be forced a bit. Fit between mudflap, sideskirt and body is so-so. Maybe you can achieve a better fit if you leave off the large rear box until you have added the mudflaps. Maybe.

Freehand with an airbrush. Working with low pressure and close to the surface, as recommended in the "How to paint" book. The black lines were handpainted. They are hiding the overspray, so no need for masking here. Maybe thats the reason why the Russians adopted this camouflage pattern :D

Sideskirts painted. Also made sone corrections at the yellow patches and did some touch-ups here and there. Now up to some more chipping with brush and sponges!
