Painted Russian 45mm AT Gun

Following on my post on the release of The Plastic Soldier Company Limited 1/72nd scale Russian 45mm AT gun, I have managed to get the first of the guns and crew painted up.

I've said before, I'm no Golden Demon winner and have no aspirations to be one either, but I do get a huge kick out of seeing this
become this



I did toy with the idea of not sticking the gun down on the base and thus being able to swap it with the 76mm infantry gun that the kit also provides but to be honest, with the low cost of these kits I would probably just end up buying another box and use that for the 76mm version.

As it is, having previously no interest in putting together a Russian WW2 army, the stuff that Plastic Soldier Company are putting out is making it very difficult to resist....
