From S&S models-
3xT-80BV for my current day Russian Federal Army.
3x the (half) new BTR-T. Half new because it is built on the old T-55 chassis. These will come in handy as fire support and troop carriers.
3xBMD-1. I think these are outdated, but according to the often unreliable, but useful Wikipedia, Russia still has 715 in active units, and 2400 in storage.
For the Army of the Islamic Republic of Iran!
2x of the very cute Airfix Scorpion tank. The Iranian Army has 110 in active units, again according to wiki.
Last week I ordered three of the Trumpeter Chinese Type-59 tanks. According to the wiki, Iran has a total of 760 T-55/4 and Type-59s. The majority of which have been converted to T-72z, Safir-74, and Type-72z respectively. I figured I could get away with the conversion simply by adding ERA all over the thing.
That about covers it, oh yeah I spent too much.
Not all has been fiscal investment though, I have made some improvements to my collection lately, most recent are my Russian Federal forces.
|Rather than make a separate stand alone platoon, I made a platoon of conversions and mixed them into the other two to make three total platoons with some unique figures in each.|
Here is another little something I have worked on. Georgian Army T-72BV. This used to be the old Revell kit.
|The ERA is airdry clay pressed onto some leftover plastic sheet skirt armor from my large PzIII collection.|
|IMO, it looks better than it did sitting in my "bad guy" box unloved.|
|The applique armor is also from airdry. I looks like it cracked but it didn't. These are panel lines between sheets. When treated correctly, this stuff is durable and easy to work with.|
