We tend to create idealized pictures of vehicle in- teriors, with a clean, luminous appearance, disconnected from the condition of the external surfaces of the vehicle. It's true that most AFV interiors are painted in a light color -white In the case of WW Soviet ve- hile, beige and red primer for their German counterparts, 2 turquoise green shade in some modern Russian vehicles like the Scud, etc.- But when it comes to represent a tank in combat like this T-34, the reality is quite different. The Mig Jimenez combat compartments weren't clean and comfortable spaces at all. The crew had to endure miserable condi- tions; there was an accumulation of mud introduced from outside by the crewmembers, dust and propellant gases. Exe. (THE WEATHERING MAGAZINE / INTERIORS AFV Club 34/76 kit rainwater leaked inside, and above all, a foul odor created by a mix of engine oil fumes, fuel and in many cases, even ‘the result of the soldiers’ own bodily functions! The T-34s had an especially dark and uncomfortable crew compart- ment, they weren't as well equipped and finished as the German tanks. Mechanisms were simple and rudimentary, ‘and it was a common occurrence to see the floors covered in dirt and grime. The crew entered the vehicle with their boots caked in fresh mud -or earth and dust- that was then mixed in 2 thick goo with the oll and fuel of the interior. The floor has become a poo! of black liquid which covers ‘everything there, and the cordite gases create a toxic atmo- sphere. The extractor fans were installed in later versions of the T-34, so the only real option to ventilate the interior \was to fight with open hatches, even if that meant endur- ing rain or snow. This article intends to serve as an example of the filthy con- ditions common to tank interiors mentioned above. To a ‘greater or lesser extent, almost any weathering effect pres- ‘ent in the exterior surfaces can be also found in the crew ‘compartment: from chipping, rust, mud, dust, etc. to other fe grease or caked > to you can saehow the afferent areas and components have ed in thelr respecte bace colts ted vide primer, whe and 50.0n) We can use books or photos from the internet as reference.

Operationally, the MiG-21's amaz- ing record includes service with no less than 56 air forces and action in 30 shooting wars. With. a phenomenal production tally of 13,500 aircraft, this is more than two-and-a-half times that of the F-4 Phantom, the MIG's long-time adversary in Vietnam and in the Middle East. For this issue, our focus will be aimed solely on ‘the cockpit of this pivotal aircraft. Coming to us in 1:32 scale, the Trumpeter cockpit is nicely de- ‘tailed straight from the box. As a bonus, the large scale also makes it the perfect candidate for add- Jing a few enhancements, adding to the realism and reinforcing the busy world that is the modern jet fighter cockpit. ‘When it comes to painting the interior of any Sovi- et era aircraft the obvious color choi Supposedly a calming color, this shade isapparently chosen to promote pilot comfort and ease of instru- ment visibility.
