Here are my newest updates - my mix of Rusks & Kazaks ( Cossacks ).
This is a 1/72 Revell T80 & a converted Matchbox 1/76th T34. I decided to add a black star instead of the normal red one & changed all the red ones I did into black ones.
Converted commander's turret , added milliput crewmen & 3 one shot missiles.Fuel tanks were modified to make them stronger as they are flimsy in the original kit & will easily break off if handled roughly.
Here are the pics before weathering.
Plasticote grey primer , then plasticote terracotta primer , peat brown washes & light W&n brown drybrush.
Now all I have to do is find suitable 15mm cavalry to convert into Cossacks.
|I built this in the early 80's from a hand soap plastic cap & playmobil parts.|
|Decided to refurbish it & called it Sputnik|
