    More of the documentation of my 20mm Second World War project. This time Russian armour, with a focus on the latter part of the war. As always Russian armour comes in any colour you like, as long as it’s green. Lots more pictures on the blog as well as images of the Soviet armour I’ve seen in museums. You can find them here Russian Armour in 20mm

    Really well done sir.  I especially the light dirt on the roofs of the SU-122 and the SU-85 and the BA-64, just adds that extra little oomph to the models.

    You’ve been to quite a few distant museums there, I confess my jealousy!

    I’ve been told that you can tell a Russian made t34/85 turret vs. a Chinese made one by how the top and bottom halves come together.  Supposedly the Chinese versions are a straight line along the sides while the Russian made turrets follow the side dip.  No idea if it’s true but perhaps I should google first and type second…

    I’ve been fortunate to do a lot of work travel in addition to holidays and I’ve always made the time to visit military museums that are close by (and sometimes not so close by!). The work trips are best as this doesn’t involve negotiations with the family and lots of eye rolling 😂
