It's been too long...
I've finally been able to finish off a few models - most of which is part of my Task 2 entry in the 2013 Group Build on The Guild I'll be putting it all up over the next few days - but thought I would start off today with a bunch of Soviet soft skins.
First up is an S&S Ural 375. I got this to act as a supply truck for my 2S1 artillery battery shown here and here - and hopefully soon shown all together... Anyway - this was a great, simple (and huge) kit/truck - which goes together very nicely (resin and metal) and fulfills the purpose I wanted - an excellent representation of a much used Soviet truck - without having to deal with axles etc like a plastic kit. For some reason I find the underside of truck kits very stressful!
So - here it is:
Next is 3 Gaz 66 trucks - again all from S&S. Two of these will primarily act as the tows (portees) for my VDV's 120mm mortars while the final one will act as the portee for one of my VDV ZU-23. Again this is a straight forward resin and metal kit. There is an excellent review of it on Andy's blog Cold War Gamer
Here they are:
Finally - here's a look at all the soft skins together
Sorry if the pics are a little dark...
Anyway - more tomorrow
