In a previous post I mentioned that I had acquired a number of 1/72 scale tanks and AFVs that had originally been offered with Combat Tanks magazine; some of these would be suitable for my Nuts! WW2 skirmishing games.
Here it is, as found on the magazine and prior to new paint job; all very nice, but there were a number of issues that needed resolving. Firstly, I felt the camouflage scheme had to go, to be replaced with a battle-worn, 'rough-and-ready' appearance; it had, after all, been slugging it out on the eastern front. The radio antenna, too, needed to be removed as my Red tanks would have no electronic comms...
Here it is, following its various priming, washes, highlighting and basing etc; I had a go at re-painting (badly) Soviet propaganda slogans on the turret which I'd lifted off the 'net, but, which I think adds to the vehicle's crude appearance; the effect I was after.
I'm happy with the overall result and the scale too, which fits in well with my PSC troops - not bad for a freebie - just got hold of a Panzer Mk4, so that will get a similar treatment in time...eventually ;)
That's it for now,
