  1. Keep on trucking with CA-30!

    Thanks PanZair! These trucks are not so glamorous but they have a rugged character. Andrew
  2. Dear Fellow Modellers Here is the Chinese CA-30 truck which is a clone of the Soviet Zil-151. The design owes much to the lend-lease Studebacker trucks from WWII. It was in service in China from 1960s to 1980s and I believe some still serve in the Bangladesh army. In the Vietnam war they chugged down the Ho chi Minh trail and so made a major part in the eventual victory of the Communists. It is dressed up with Miniarm resin wheels and SKP lamps and lenses. Trumpeter provide a canvas tilt but omit the cover on the front so this was added from tissue. Hope you like it? Andrew
  3. Cold war T-64 on the prowl

    Thank you all for your kind comments. I'm glad you're not too bored with my background scene - yet? Dear Badder, I bought a tree making kit from 'Treemendous' at the Nationals. I guess the leaves are like chopped herbs that you pour on the brush and branches Andrew
  4. Dear Fellow Modellers A few photos of my Trumpeter T-64. Whilst we in the UK were fighting to get the opposed piston 2 stroke L60 to work in the Chieftain, ironically the Russians were having awful trouble getting their similar engine to work in the T-64. In the case of the 5TD engine the cylinders are horizontal so helping the ultra-low profile of the tank. These tanks were amongst the main protagonists in the terrible Ukrainian conflict. Hope you like? Andrew
  5. T-60 No. 264 Factory Stalingrad (MiniArt;1:35)

    Seems like an unusual camouflage to me? Where in Russia was this vehicle seen Dmytro? Feel sorry for the crew going off to fight the Wehrmacht in the T-60 Andrew
  6. Modern Russian camoflage jackets??

    Dear Friends I am planning to paint a resin 1/35 figure of a modern (post-1980) Russian tanker. He should be wearing a camo jacket. Could anyone guide me on photos of Russian camo jackets from the 1980-90s period, like for the Grozny operation? Thanks in advance Andrew
  7. German cavalry

    Thanks Billy D, getting them properly on those saddles was important to me. I suppose if the horses were trotting they would lift up, but then the riders leg would go straight and Dragon gave them bent knees! Andrew
  8. German cavalry

    Dear Blaubar, oops you can tell I don't ride horses! The background is just a sky railway poster stuck to some board and then some scenery stuck on top of that, quite simple really! Andrew
  9. German cavalry

    Thanks John My daughter thought the second rider had his reins too slack, but maybe the second horse knows to follow the feldwebel ahead? Andrew
  10. German cavalry

    Dear Friends I had a go at this old set from Dragon 2007 to see whether I could make a go at painting horse flesh Most fun was getting the reins to look realistic - micro masking tape! Hope you like them? Andrew
  11. T-64BV Trumpeter 1/35

    Brilliant model Olexandr, I particularly liked the weathering on the rubber skirts. T-64 is a very radical vehicle , a gigantic gun on a small sports car of a tank Andrew
  12. Takom 1:35 T-55A

    Yes, they are brilliant and inspiring books! Andrew
  13. Resin Russian figures from TANK anyone?

    Thank you Das Abteilung Very helpful information. They are such good figures it's a shame they don't have wider distribution Andrew
  14. Evening Guys Am really taken by the resin figures from the manufacturer 'Tank'. Does anyone know of a UK supplier? Thanks Andrew
  15. Takom 1:35 T-55A

    The best book on T-54/55 details comes from our Czech friends at WWP Not sure if it is still in print though :0( Andrew
