|The assembled regiment, some with the obligatory slogans painted on. The big turret makes it easier to paint these, the slogans are all from photos in the Concorde special, 'Stalins Heavy Tanks'.|
|Not a nice view for the Germans.|
|These are nice models and go together well, with real bulk to them. The only let down are the basic tracks but from the side they aren't very obvious.|
|Much more obvious from the front. Looks like I did my usual sloppy job of not cleaning the flash off enough.|
|The raised detail on the engine deck and track guards drybrushed up very nicely.|
These are finished in my usual Vallejo Russian green (894) over a black base, although for these I added an extra highlight layer of heavily drybrushed Russian Green mixed with a dollop of ochre which lightened the basic green quite well and looks a bit more like the faded green you see on old modern Russian equipment. The whole lot was dirted up with mud around the running gear and an overall light drybrush of pale tan.
