SU 152 CREW ENJOYING A BREAK(REPOST)

Postby builder76 » Tue Jul 11, 2017 11:30 pm

Hi Guys,
This is another Russian dio from my early years.
At the time ,I found myself getting interested in building Russian military.There was some nice kits & extras(eg field kitchen) around at the time, My difficulty was with what I had available in kits/extras to produce a scenic dio that would be both interesting, and if possible realistic & feasible on the actual Russian front :idea: .
I have a particular personal liking for this dio. It isn`t very often it turns out as originally envisaged, but I felt that this one did. :)
Incidentally, I was on a learning curve re painting military figures(at the time) so I requested a modelling friend, who was really very good at figures, to paint for me ( as quality examples), four of the Russian figures, I was then able to use his technique & notes to produce the remaining figures. :pray:
The fencing & hut wood construction sticks came from my local wood yard, The "hut "roof from a metal bending machine that makes corrugated sheeting. Its amazing sometimes where one can utilise building bits from . That's why I enjoy modelling & dio building so much. 8-)
I hope you enjoy the dio, any comments/advice will of course be very welcome.

Regards
John

No Steve the SU 152 was a BRONCO KIT and from memory the "Mobile Kitchen " & the
soldiers were both from MINI ART KITS. :think:

I've built that kit too. Very nice kit, but not the easiest one to build.

Mines not a patch on yours, but I'll repost the photos soon.

The tracks were 'entertaining' ! He little plastic handholds were impossible. I replaced mine with brass wire
