Never too much of a good thing so I started next project - Captured SU-85 from Mini Art .

The box contain a lot of sprues, so the assembly process will bring a lot of fun.

I will try to paint it the same like this paint shemes shown: Russian green on the hull behind the wheels and german dunkelgelb and olivegrun on the rest of the vehicle:

As always I made in-box review video. If someone is interested please follow this link:

Some progress photos soon

Some small progress. I assembled all wheels, each comes from four parts so the process was a little bit time consumpting but the details on finished wheel are worth this time.

I've had the MiniArt Su-85 or -100 on my wish list for a while ( but NOT with full interior! ), so I'll follow this with interest

Morning Mateusz,

Another interested member here. I particularly like the paint scheme shown on the box artthumbs up.

I hear some of the miniart kits suffer from substandard plastic making it difficult to assemble without does the plastic seem to you?

Thank you all for the interest. Si Benson- partially you are right, in older MiniArt kits the plastic was fragile and easy to broke. In recent kits ( I built the SU-122 and T-54-1) I didn't noticed any problems with it.

Summer is not conducive to modeling but slowly im wrking with this project smiley

I want to put the crew in the vehicle and leave all hatches opened, so I prepare the interior for painting.

I like how the MiniArt makes his kits: even those parts which will be invisible after final assembly are very well done.

I also did the most tedious part of the work- cleaned and prepared to assembly all track links.

I have arrived in time! She certainly looks a beast of a machine. You must have a lot of parts to get through if its interior as well. I wish you all the luck
