My photo
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)!!

Russian Artillery (Part 9) - Steppes Variant

Good day gentlemen!

As promised in my last post, today I will be showing some photos of the Russian Artillery section, destined to be used for the steppes (dirt bases). This is the second variant of the three.

It is consisted of the basic elements (what I consider basic in my mind anyway): four guns, crews, four GAZ trucks, officers and ammo crates. The guns and the trucks are the same for all variants. I wanted to be able to use them in every occasion and that was the main reason I didn't base the models (you have to be frugal these days...).


Some closer looks on the figures.

I hope you like them.
As usual C&C are more than welcome!
