Osas and Grishas






I assembled the remaining Skytrex Soviet FAC's today including a pair of Osa II FAC(M)'s and a single P6  FAC(T). These took ages to scrape, file, sand and glue, but eventually went together quite easily. I also assembled the Combrig resin Grisha corvette, which was yet more fiddly even though I left off some of the finer details for wargaming purposes. I had to replace some parts with plastic bits from a cheap, surplus to requirements Udaloy class destroyer model kit, as the resin components were far too fragile to survive very long. This completes the Soviet equipped flotilla for the moment, apart from a cunning plan that I will reveal later.

  1. Very nice- have toyed with the idea of gaming this sort of thing but the set up cost has put me off. At least there is no terrain to buy....

    Cheers,

  2. I bought a lot of my models way back when they weren't so expensive. If I started now, I'd be thinking of 1/1200th scale or even 1/3000th.

    1. That sounds more affordable- do you know of any suppliers in 1/1200th?

      Cheers,

      Pete.

  3. No, that's the problem...but 1/3000 is easy.

    1. Will have a look on shapeways- may be something there. 1/3000 is a bit small for me. Although it would be better for the engagement ranges.

      Cheers,

      Pete.
