SOVIET 57MM ANTI-TANK CREW ,BREWING UP

Postby builder76 » Mon Sep 10, 2018 5:05 pm

Hi Guys,
I thought for change I would do a dio without an AFV in it.
Saw this Mini Art kit Soviet 57mm anti-tank +crew on line , continuing my Soviet theme(this will be my penultimate Soviet dio).
The gun turned out to be a real pig to build, small intricate pieces some requiring careful alignment, some also ended up being rescued from the dreaded carpet monster. Only grit determination saved the day. I also learnt a few new expletives.
However when I finished building & displayed it ,the gun/crew looked a little bare all alone on the dio.
So after a bit more research I added an Eastern Express Army Truck
ZiS -5V kit as an ammo truck, plus a camouflage ammunition dump. tree & wall. That seemed to fill out the dio and give it a must better all round perspective.
I am personally pleased with the final finished overall build, turned out better than I initially envisaged.
Comments /criticisms as usual, always appreciated.

John

Stunning work John. Your ground work (mud, grass, etc.) is incredible.
Cheers
