Well, hope the admins will forgive me for this "threadomancy", I just work really slowly on my WW2 stuff...but here's something new, in the sense that I finished it today. Crew was painted at least 4-5 months ago.







An Italeri ZiS-3 for my Stalingrad/Winter Soviet force. More or less happy with it, turned out suitably winter-y

Painting dreadfully nothing lately...but I took out to finish this HobbyBoss 1:48 Easy Eight with some Tamiya crew. Tracks are left to do I think.

Also, two IBG Zrínyis.

Larger scale stuff continues...this time a Tamiya Pz II that turns 50 this year. A vignette with soldiers preparing to attack will be made for it once I get around buying the relevant figures, but otherwise I'm pretty happy with this. Decided to make it relatively quickly, I did not spend days with the weathering only, painted it over the Easter weekend.

Thank you very much guys. Next topic most probably will be 1:72 again, as I know myself and that I would burn out with big models quickly :)  I have a small diorama/vignette to be finished in 1:35 tho, I will put up some pics once fully done.

Might do another "one month platoon" American project as I sold away the PSC guys and bought much better AB Figures instead. They are based and waiting in a metal box to be painted.

Thanks molterei!

And now something for tha AFV guys, an almost finished PSC T-34 with the 76mm turret.



I got him in 2017 as part of a bigger lot, set him aside, built sometime last year, and sprayed the 4BO on it around the same time. After that, back to the box, and yesterday I thought I could finish him up with the two others from the same box. Some dust, fuel leak from the fuel tank and exhaust stains remain for tomorrow. Sadly they were all built except for the tracks when they got here, so cannot add a commander.
