T-90A from model collect

Well its done! and despite the problems I have faced its been well worth the effort! And to celebrate the first Russian tank in Oronegro, its got a special base! A ruined factory, I hope you like it. Oh yes and there is one more thing I should mention... its blue :-) Thanks to Ben for this idea actually, he said I should do it like my Spetnaz and so although I left out the white that is what I have done! Oh yes and this being Oronegro this tank is not your usual T-90A no it's a T-90O, Just like the stealth challengers it has high-tech armour, advanced weaponry, the latest technology and an advanced Hydrogen fuel cell with diesel back up engine. making this tank not only equal to its western counterparts but in some ways better!

For more on the importance of these tanks go to this post: Russian tanks - Rebel factories, on my Oronegro blog
rolling through the ruins of a once busy factory this blue predator stalks its prey

being a civil war you have to win hearts and minds as well as impose your rule (do you like the juxtaposition)

A blue Russian tank... so its a Blue Red tank, and I am Blue Red Colour blind...

the fuel for the emergency diesel engine, which is used in case the hydrogen cell brakes.

I really like this tank. perhaps I shall get more.

I have done a post on the Oronegro blog about these... they are after all very important to WW3... more will be seen on that blog

And of course we need a comparison between this tank and its main rivals! the Challengers still have thicker armour but its no longer a case of one being far inferior! now all that separates them is the width of this armour. So now the Abrams and the Challengers have a lethal enemy. Can the Russian tanks now match the western ones as well as beating them with looks?
frst thing you notice is how the T-90A is shorter than the Challenger2

next you notice how the profile of the Russian is lower... that's due to the autoloader
Well there we go! I hope your all well, unlike me. off all week and it could take another 5 days before I recover :-(

Next up a ruined building for my friend in the Netherlands and then the Leopard 2 A6! the T-90 is going to have some serious competition in the looks department.

have a nice day/night!


  1. Nicely built and painted Gowan!

  2. She's a beauty, I need some of these in 15mm!

    1. thanks. go for it. these are really cool machines!

  3. Came out great. Nice work.

  4. Really nice job Gowan. The blue camo is certainly a refreshing brake from all my tan tanks! I love the "hola" message on the front fender. At least some poor Oronegrean soldier received some kind words before being run down...
    Good to see it finally finished, nice job!

    1. Thankyou Ben. I put the message there thinking pretty much the same thing. of course lots of things get written in tanks and if you just wanted to be different from the rest I imagine that this would be a humorous thing to put on.
