I finally finished this build. And I finally have some time to post it.








Every time you eat celery,an angel vomits in a gas station bathroom. Tanks rule. I know the load is late,but the voices tell me to pull over and clean the guns.

Thanks Logan.I thought I had posted the back story......... :o

In 1951,Stalin goes to war with the NATO countries in W.Europe. The Eastern European nations,and the Ukranians decide to revolt,and start fighting against the USSR. This model has Polish markings.

That's a looker for sure, Zod! I especially like your work weathering the wheels and treads. With the right background, it could pass for a real tank!

Outstanding!

Thanks everyone. :) The kit went together without any drama. Typical Tamiya build.
