Call that a tank? ;-)

Just to make a change from Giles' pictures of 1:100 scale tanks and vehicles, here is a 1:1 scale T34/85 which the Procurement Sub-Committee of the WNEC found in rural Hungary. Had a bit of trouble trying to get it back to the UK. though... ;-)

Photo taken by Mark - fortunately not wearing his kilt at the time!

Zvezda's BT5,Its a 6 piece kit that all fits together well and after a black undercoat and some green paint
followed by a dry brush  its nearly all finished. Only wants some brown to make it muddy

Here is Zvezda's latest offering in 1/100 scale next to a15mm German infantryman
made by Battlefront, this 7 piece kit is a bit more fiddly than their tank models but has the 
same crisp detail that is brought up nicely with some dry brushing and a ink wash.
