Slow progress with my Cold War.
This is the little project I started in my brain about three weeks ago. The contestants are the Soviets and US Army: the scene is Western Europe: the time is ~1955. My Soviets are conversions of the new Zvezda WW2 Soviets armed with Orion and Mars/ESCI AKs, RPG-2s, and RPDs, and as of today a SVT-40 sniper variant.
I have been a little busy lately with real life and haven’t quite had enough free time for minis. Happily this weekend in shaping up to be a nice brake, so there may be more progress as in today.
This progress involved converting and priming squad 2 as well as the platoon “Comrade Commander” the end of last week. Then I converted Squad 3 today. This was a trial. My main trouble came from trying to mix the epoxy glue. The cheap bottle seems to squirt out uneven amounts of resin and hardener, plus it is just plain old. I need a newer/better bottle of glue.
These are the only two I painted today: the commander and his sniper. The sniper is armed with an SVT-40 which I modified with a Mosin scope to make a somewhat more suitable post-war sniper rifle. I got to paint MKK on the shirt of the sniper, this will be the only I plan on using in the platoon. The commander is from the Italeri Tank Hunter team.
Also have a look at the Ben's Soldiers Facebook page in the sidebar.
Thanks for looking, guys!
