Early '80's Soviets

1:100 A-10 from Revell

Soviet Inf from Peter Pig


T-72's from QRF in one of Byron's excellent storage boxes

T-64's from QRF w/ ERA

ZSU 23-4 with scratch built gun because QRF didn't send one. This a blessing in disguise when one considers the quality of QRF gun barrels.

BMP 2's from QRF w/ replacement barrel's

Mi-24 Hind D from QRF. Metal bits are very soft. I think the molds are old as the resin was badly pitted. It is however, the only 1:100 scale Hind out there. There are a few details I had to add using green stuff that aren't sculpted onto the model.

Great stuff, I'm always tempted to try cold war in 15mm (next to my 6mm). :-)

Great work Mike! I didn't realize they had the T-64s with the ERA. Those are beauties.

And the Hind! Sweet.

Would you mind sharing how you painted your Soviet Infantry?

Thanks.

Thanks guys.

Chris - I painted the Soviet infantry a while ago and am having trouble remembering what I did. I know the base coat is vallejo model color Russian uniform and dry brushed with Vallejo Green Brown. I then washed everything with agrthrax earthshade. Not sure what I did for a highlight. Helmet is Russian green from vallejo.

Hi, I really dig those figs! I've always had a soft spot for Russian kit! IIRC Revell makes a plastic Hind in 1:100. Might be 1:144, though.

I'm a fan of throwing down against Soviet kit, or with it. I'm working on a bunch of 6mm right now, but this stuff looks freakin' cool.

Great work, Mike. Especially for dealing with that Hind kit.
