Welcome to my blog. I have upwards of 100 projects in various stages of incompletion or total abandonment, so you may well find something of interest if you rummage about a bit (check out the Labels at the bottom of the blog). I concentrate on air and naval wargaming, but other 'skirmishy' things quite often pop up out of nowhere, only to disappear again after something else grabs my attention. I even finish the occasional project now and again!

What a Tanker! Italeri Fast Assembly T34/76

I managed to squeeze in some model building last night and now have two Italeri 'Fast Assembly' T34/76 1941 tanks undercoated and ready for painting. These were really easy to assemble although the track units were a pain to remove from the sprue and to clean up due to the very heavy duty injection stubs. They compare well next to the Armourfast T34/76 1943 version, even if they are slightly shorter, and have a lot more detail already moulded onto the hull including tools and tow ropes for example. I haven't attached the turret or hull to the tracks yet, as it makes them easier to paint, but the overall impression is pretty positive. I'm hoping to get the KV's built later today, so that I can paint the whole lot up in one go before the game this time next week.
