My finished build of Mengs Shilka ZSU-23-4. Model depicted as a tank been used during the Syrian conflict/civil war. Stock build, painted with Tamiya Paints (custom yellow), weathered with lifecolor Liquid dust pigments and Ammo dust pigments. Will be building a suitable dio base for it.
Soviet ZSU-23-4M/3 1:35 HongModel New company HongModel have been in touch to tell us about their new product that they're launching soon. The Shilka is a Soviet era Self-Propelled Radar-Guided Anti-Aircraft platform that showers its enemy with 23mm shells from four barrels once it has a radar lock. The M was an upgraded system with a new loading system and some improvements in longevity, which seem to have paid off because they are still in use with a great many of their operators, including the Russian Marines, and more germane to current events, Syria. Due to its fearsome rate of fire it garnered the nickname Sewing Machine, or Zeus. Enough of the background waffle, here are a bunch of pictures of a test shot, which promises plenty of detail, and a step up from the old Dragon kit of yore. You can build either the 4M or 4M3, and there is the promise of more to come in due course. You can follow them on Facebook here
