Soviet Lend Lease Tanks


I have been flicking through this Osprey and now plan to add some more Lend Lease AFV's to the Russian tank collection. I had to bin two of the three Sherman M4A2's that I built last weekend, when my sticky fingers ruined the paint finish and the decals went pear shaped, but at least one will now be replaced. I have also found an old 1/72nd scale Hasegawa M3 Lee kit that I could build for What a Tanker!, although it would be very unlikely to appear after 1944. If I can find a not too expensive Churchill MkIII then that would be a better option. In the meantime I'm waiting for a couple of T34/76 1943 models to arrive in the post to bulk out the Soviets.

  1. You can't beat an Osprey for inspiration. Every time I pick up one of their books its followed by a flurry of new model purchases... and thus the Lead Mountain grows!!

  2. Oh yes...this is a particularly good / dangerous one as well!

  3. Why did you bin the models? Acrylic paint can easily be stripped using caustic soda.
