BT7 Tanks in the Soviet Union

It's the summer of 1941.

Comrade Stalin himself called us out for service.

A whole battalion of tanks, but no one knows why.

Maybe a large propaganda movie, but why did they issue us ammunition?

Could it be the Germans are planning to attack?

Panzer III Line Up

I am trying to primer paint all of my collection that is not yet painted.  This has been a multi-year project that started in 2016, but of course the move to Kentucky from California has caused serious interruption and delay.  The Roco Panzer III has been converted into an armored recovery vehicle.

A second armored recovery vehicle based on the Panzer III.

Panzer III as an artillery towing vehicle.  Turret hole plated over with a canvas, and towing pintle on the rear.

Panzer III flamethrower.  New larger barrel made out of aluminum tubing.  Very easy conversion.

Panzer III with rubble clearing plow.

Another Panzer III flamethrower.  I have enough spare turrets to return the flamethrowers back into regular gun tanks if the need arises.  They will be painted to match this hull.

Another recovery version of the Panzer III.

The whole line up before the primer painting.
While the Roco Panzer III is an old kit, it has a lot of potential.  I have a few more in the wings also waiting for painting.

Special Announcement Plastic Army Women

BMC Toys is running a Kickstarter campaign to make Plastic Army Women.  These will be the same size as their
classic Army Men.

I am in for $50 and they only need 142 more people at that level to get all the stretch goals.

I really want the dog handler.

This expires in less than a week.
Figures will be made in Tan, Green, and Pink.  I want the Green ones.  They also have special stretch goals with resin figures and special sets.
