What’s Next — More Soviets?

I have the Japanese modern fleet in 1/3000 ready to paint but that is a small task and really will be a filler between the early Soviets being completed and the next 6mm project. One option is to finish off the Soviets with mid and late World War 2 troops. This is the lead-pile ready for that.

Lots more AFVs – 20 or so T34/85, 10 JS-2, KV-2s, more KV-1s.

Also more artillery, Katyusha rockets, some later war aircraft (Yaks) and a bigger artillery battery or two.

Lastly, in case one finds oneself near a river, some floating vehicles would be useful so we have some boats 🙂

A close up - yep, some riverboats for the Soviets as well - Thomo thinks of everything!

      And they are so quick and easy to paint 👿 even basing is not that onerous once the sand is down. It goes very quickly after that.

      I store them in file boxes – I’ll put some pictures up later this week. Because the first thing I do is base them on magnetic bases, everything else becomes simple after that, even spraying as I found in the past that with 6mm figures the spray undercoat and varnish were strong enough to flip figures over the carousel. I have a magnetic carousel now in the “spray painting chamber” …. well OK, the DHL box I spray in 🙂

        Selfish of me to ask, but yes, I would like to see pics of your painting setup and storage.
