Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

Zvezda 1/72 Soviet 82mm Mortar with Crew

Good day everyone!
A couple of days ago, I bought Zvezda's 1/72 Soviet 82mm Mortar with Crew, since the long awaited sets from Pegasus, are far from being released by the company, and just because they were a new addition to my hobby shop! :-)

I bought two same kits. This is the ''steppe'' version (bases with dirt and grass) - the other which is not yet finished will have a more ''urban'' look (grey bases).

The models and figures were assembled rather easily (no gule needed, but I used some just in case).
A joy to make and a pleasure to paint!

I hope you like them!



  1. Nice paintjob! I like them very much!
    I bought this set a few weeks ago, but the status is still "primecoated".

  2. They look pretty awesome.

  3. Very nice, I just gone with the PSC ones but bought the Zvedda Pak 36.

  4. Great looking figures and very nicely painted, if you don't need glue for the figures, how do you fix them together?? Do they clip together??

  5. You did a great job on them Thanos! I think I will have a look for some of these sets at the CRISIS meeting in Antwerp next week ;-)


  6. These look really good. Nice work.

  7. If you only got these a couple of days ago, you must be painting much quicker than I do! These look great, and it's nice to see a mortar and crew so well sculpted.

  8. Those turned out great, well done!

    @Dan: Thank you mate! :-)
    @Al: Thx Al, they can be mixed very nicely with any other figures, except for the PSC (which are a bit bulky compared to other figs)
