Nice work on those SU-76s, rhabstclair! What did you use for the crew on these? I do wish GHQ would make some open topped vehicle crewmen one of these days.

Thanks Pete! Yeah, me too. I just chopped up some Russian artillery crewmen, same as I’ve been doing for the German and U.S. OT AFV’s. As soon as I wrap up the Russian (all done) and American infantry I’m working on its back to AFVs for me… lots of OT German vehicles to customize!

That looks awesome with the crews! I'm impressed with your ability to do that kind of work at that scale!

The Russian 3-tone I did probably 12-15 years ago, added to it periodically. Have 75 or more in this scheme. Have probably another 20-30 that I have acquired here and there. So if I pull them together, paint them. It would be about 100.I guess

I like the addition of crews in the su-76s, pretty cool.

Pickup in a box, had to glue some wings back on. Hind A to the right and center by GHQ.
The Hind D’s to the left have a smaller frame. The wings are interesting.

Nice set up with infantry on the T-34.

T-64s that are based. They have been transferred to another operator.

My eyes aren't what they used to be, but that last picture shows T62s, not T64s.

Having culled most of the biggest figures, these look okay at first glance. However these are just more Z scale figures being marketed as 1/285 scale.

After waiting for about 25 years for a company to produce tank riders to the same scale as the tanks we got these.... Disappointed!
