Ha, had the same idea since I've bought the watch, unfortunately my modding skills are very limited -or I just don't have the courage yet to do it :)

Seriously Ligavesh, there is a bit of a learning curve but it is not that hard and I know you must have some beater vostoks you can practice on. Give it a shot comrade you know we well help you if you run into a problem (y)

will do, it's been just harder to find the time lately - I sometimes think I'll get a chance to start modding/other watch stuff when I retire o_O

Yes, you did! 😂 Thanks, mate!
I used dial dots to fix the dial on the movement. In the past, I even used double sided photo stickers on other mods. Works as well, but I don't know how long the glue on these stickers will last. Time will tell...

Leftovers today:
"Red Star Sandwich"
15999808

I found the inner parts (2414A with a well-(self-)made sandwich dial, incl. lume) in the classified ads the other day. Installed standard Komandirskie hands, put it into an old 420 case and equipped it with a stainless steel crown, an old aluminum(?) and plastic bezel and a vintage leather strap, all parts from my box. Love to wear it now.

Worked on my brass mods recently....
"BlueBrass Automatic" (final version):
16006044

Put dial and hands from a Komandirskie 811398 on a 2416B, added a red SE/Neptune second hand and stuffed everything into an old dechromed Amphibia brass case with my favourite brass bezel and an Orca stainless steel caseback.

Dirty Spartan build. Classic Amphibian case cerakoted in Dark Tungsten then given an aged/dirty look. Custom Spartan brass dial that I aged and lumed. Stainless steel stock Vostok bezel that I aged and was reworked on a lathe to fit and make into a smooth bezel. Hands were gloss black. Sanded 90% of the black off down to brass and left as is. New 2414 movement. New handmade leather strap in marine green color.

And on a side note. Received my new leather skiver. Or as I used to call them for the 7 years I was a Corrections Officer. My new shank.
