For my next piece of madness I decided to do a battery of Soviet anti-aircraft vehicles. Together....at the same time....4 of them!   ::)
I have been working on these for the last month or so

A quick summary of the kits:
Meng Shilka - beautiful kit with workable tracks but clean-up of the spruce attachments on each link has to be exact for them to connect.
Trumpeter SAM-6 - simple kit, nice missiles. Link&length tracks though. Not a fan of them from when I build one years ago. Will replace these.
Panda Tunguska - horrible kit. POOR fit of parts and really overdone with tiny bits. Non workable individual link tracks. Might replace these too
Panda TOR - such an improvement over the Tunguska. Very detailed radar that went together very well. Also has individual workable tracks

Currently on the process of priming them all. Each will get a different colour scheme just undecided on which ones yet....and then there will be the tracks   :-\

Thanks Gents! And I'd hardly call myself organised. You should see how many unfinished projects I have. 😂

I got both sets of Meng/AK paints for Modern Russian Armour and I have to say they do spray very nicely.

All 4 vehicles have now got their base colour. I'm using the schemes in the Meng Shilka booklet for 3 of them. It may not be 100% accurate but they look good and that's good enough for me.

The Tunguska will get an Artic scheme with black and grey stripes

I hope to get a good bit of the camo painting done over this weekend
