Soviet Armored Aerosani by enc86 Soviet Armored Aerosani by enc86
Here is my 1/35 Trumpeter Soviet Armored Aerosan. the big brother to my tiny bathtub on ski's. for info on this weird ride here is a wiki on it [link] . Overall i was quite impressed with this kit, it has more parts than most of my tanks, but i really cant recommend this one for everybody. i thought my regular aerosan was fragile, this one features many small and very very fragile thin parts. i was lucky enough to get this one together, and was one of the hardest models i have done to date.
while i feel i over weathered this one, i am still happy with the results, this is one wild ride( i need one in real life) tonight ill post some size comparison shots and start work on the monster for the diorama these things will go in.
wish me luck!

Same here. I had to read your description and the article you link to make sure it was after a real vehicule. The shapes and designs of vehicules born after practical and eficiency considerations are amazing. I don't often draw vehicules but It would be fun to try inventing some designed for precise landscapes and functions.

i agree, its interesting to see what human ingenuity can do. this is a prefect example of thinking outside the box and creating a vehicle of specialized purpose.

very cool idea! think that would make a great exercise to create something for a very precise landscape.

I'd love to find some plans of this so I could make a 1/16 scale of it.

Mind you if I pick up the kit I could just take the measurements off the model and double it. It wouldn't be 1/16 scale but it would be close.

yea that would be cool! this kit was under $20us and the two man scout aerosani was under $10us

That's cheap for Trumpeter. They usually don't sell anything for under $50

the site i use has some pretty good prices [link] . most of my trumpeter kits were under $20us
my challenger 2,lav-25,type 87,both aerosain,and kv-2 were all under the $20 mark and other than a few gripes well worth it and fantastic looking kits when finished.
think the only ones i picked up that were on the expensive side are the ones i haven't built yet i.e striker(~$30) and my jagdpanzer e-100(~$45)

models! my favorite! especially this one. as a bit of model builder my self, I can appreciate all those small and fragile pieces...but thats part of the fun!
and now that I've floundered the night away looking at your amazing work, it has inspired me to finally finish that stupid 1/35 Trumpeter K5 rail gun I've be working on for the past year-ish...
also i now have to find that lovely aerosan kit you have masterfully crafted into awesomeness

I'm having sick ideas for this, something for my WH40K Orks. Now the only thing I'm worried about is where to find this thing.

Great job as always man.

Looks brilliant! Would you mind sharing your weathering technique? (I have a 1/35 scale BT-7 I was hoping to do in winter camo)
Reply
:iconenc86:
enc86 Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013
BT-7 is a really neat tank! sounds like fun!
As for my weathering ill go over what i did to this one. i am kinda tired so if i explain something weird, just yell at me and ill try to tell ya better lol.
anyways for this kit this is all the paint i used for the armor(figurines had bit more)Paint used:
Model Masters flat white,Model Masters Wood,Model Masters Flat Black,Model Masters Rust,Model Masters Jet exhaust,Academy art Acrylic Burnt Umber (comes in big tube, but most "art" Acrylic will do, but i think any model acyclic will dry to fast, so test first)
The Armor: i hand painted in flat white(tho this was trickier than it sounds, and if hand painted will require about 4 coats)once dry, i "dry Brushed" jet exhaust on most edges and other areas of wear, i tried to be sporadic and not have anything too parallel. i like the "jet exhaust" because it has this slightly dirty metal color to it,and is darker than other metal colors. after the dry brushing, i applied slightly thinned Acrylic brown paint to one section at time(i.e side of hull, other side and so forth, working in controlled areas). once i have one side/section covered in brown, i quickly (before it drys) wipe away with a q-tip(cotton bud) i will dampen the cotton-bud to remove more. as you can see this does two things
1. stains the overall white paint
2. gets in the cracks and other details.
anyways if more is needed re-apply, in till you get that desired dirty look.

The running gear/supports: for the black supports/ running gear(?) i first painted black,then dry brushed jet exhaust and then finally dry brushed a slight amount of rust color.

Engine and propeller: the engine was painted in flat black, then a couple of dry brushes with jet exhaust to really bring out details. the exhaust pipes were then painted with rust. the propeller/shovel handle were painted with wood, then washed with brown art Acrylic . let dry for a min and carefully remove with cotton bud to achieve the wood grain effect( takes me a couple of try's).

Hopefully this has helped a bit dude, or at least given you some things to think about. and if you have anymore questions feel free to ask.
