Portfolio: T-34-85

This is a T-34-85 tank inspired by photographs of Kommandoverband "Jaguar" - German unit that was using Soviet equipment and Soviet uniforms for undercover operations behind the front line.

Here I used kit from AFV club with parts of the turret from Dragon. Resin from PanzerArt (fuel drums and road wheels), PE from ET and Aber (various small bits), brass wire, green stuff putty. The figure is from Stalingrad miniatures  and was painted by my friend Kyle Nelson. Hope you like it and feel free to post comments/questions.

Here is a MiniArt kit that I put into civil service, somewhere in 1950-ies. Full story is in the current issue of MMI.

Flakvierling with Steyr, almost there.

On a Steyr I did a different paint job - 3 tone camo with whitewash chipped thanks to Vallejo chipping medium.

And when put together you see a difference between a dirty Steyr and relatively clean Flakvierling that is being relocated to another position.
The figure is my 1st experience in painting with acrylics and I am pretty happy with it, just need to work on the face a bit. This is excellent MG gunner from Cast48 in case you are interested.

Besides that I bought a KV-1 heavy cast turret kit from Tumpeter that I am going to finish similar to what is shown on their boxart as it is based on a known photograph from Kalinin Front. So far I did basic assembly and metal tracks from Masterclub. Waiting for PE sets to arrive and need to finish other projects as well :)
