15mm SU-76s by Zvezda
« on: July 15, 2019, 05:24:08 PM »
It's been a while since I painted any Soviet tanks, so I thought I'd better fix it, with immediate effect! Here are three SU-76 that I bought way back at Partizan!

Looking good. I like the zevezda 15mm models, nice and simple to build, but look good.

I  Was going to mention the lack of crew - but see you have that in hand. The big advantage of the PSC kits is there are always lots of figures - and lots of options, often so many options you have to pay a lot of attention to what goes with what!

Cheers Fred, yes, the only disappointing thing with the Zezda stuff is the lack of crew. I thought I had some PSC crew kicking about, but I'll have to grab some from somewhere else...

Lovely little SPGs. :)

I'd say you're lucky PSC didn't have their SU-76s, as the Zvezda kit is much more detailed - and the PSC sprue is missing a part, even though it's pictured in the assembly instructions...  >:(

Thank you. That's definitely worth knowing! I probably don;t need any more SUs now, so I don't think I'll be getting any of the PSC ones...

Nicely done 👍

I'm planning to use Command Decision for crew when I get round to it.

Cheers buddy, yes CD crew are excellent figures and I thought I had few kicking about but I don't. I might pick some up at the next convention I go to.
