Hi everyone.

I'm working on a Trumpeter T64A Mod 1981 that I wish to depict in Soviet service in Cold War Europe.

The instructions has only one painting and marking example. It is a two tone cammo with two Soviet Guards insignia on the turret and thats all.

I painted mine overall green because this seemed to be more common, and I would also like to have the white turret number as well. My question is would this still be accurate?

I'm guessing the turret number would go on the tool box on the right side of the turret if they do wear them.

That's correct,

Most were overall green, with white numbers.
If you want you can add an "agressor" cross, used during exercises.
