WWII Russian Greatcoats

I realized tonight that I haven’t posted anything in a while and thought well instead of one giant post I’ll try to add something each day over the weekend and get back up to speed.  It’s not that I haven’t been working on stuff, although I do plead guilty to not stopping and taking pics as much as I would liked to have, it’s just that I’ve been bouncing around a lot with different projects.  So tonight I’ll post the latest addition to the 1/72 WWII topic.

Introducing the Russians:

These are the Pegasus WWII Russian Greatcoats released in 2013.  The plastic they use is interesting because even after washing with soap & water it still looks very glossy and feels greasy and I always felt like I needed to wipe my hands on something but there is never any residue on my fingers.  It took a little getting used to while working with it.

They are currently based with sand and I need to finish this up with a grey dry brush to match the rubble I used on the Linka building Stalingrad ruins.

Also by Pegasus are the T34/76 quick build models:

And lastly, the Plastic Soldier Company Russian 45mm anti tank guns

Well, there’s a good start to the Stalingrad Russian defending army.  Eventually I would to add some T-70’s, T-26’s and BA-6 armored cars.  Eh, all in good time!

Thanks,
