Aotrs Shipyards Task Force - join this group to be able to download the direct-print catalogue (beta).

This month, I finally attempted to tackle something had I wanted to for quite some time - the T-72B! We have the T-72B and T-72BV at 144th. As is often the case with some of this Russian armour, there was more estimation that I would like involved, since it is nearly impossible to get accurate dimensions for the "super-dolly-parton" armour, but I did my best!

Photos of Replicator 2 direct-print version. As you can see, we're back to the brown, which at least works! I did get some silver as a sample when I got this reel. I tried it on a couple of Aotrs starships, and, assuming it photographs okay, it's better colour, as its closer to the old slightly darker grey.

We will be at Partizan this weekend (UshCha is doing Manoeuvre Group and I'll be doing Accelerate and Attack) and hopefully, at Barrage later in the year.

Next month is still up in the air - I am at the moment working on some more starships, so I haven't planned that far ahead yet (having a few items in the backlog again now) and I am still working on updating the catalogue, so we shall see.
