USSR AAA & FA
The Russians were always known for their love of heavy artillery. Here some modified Airfix Russian Infantry have transferred to the artillery.
An anti-aircraft artillery battery. These are Roco WWII trucks on Lend Lease to the Russians. A few Eadai German 88s and an instant Russian mobile anti-aircraft unit.
This makes a pretty good Russian 85mm anti-aircraft gun.
I have a five gun battery with a sixth truck for ammunition and supplies.
I have taken all my old Airfix Russians and converted them into artillery crews. I cut off the guns and some of them have been given larger bases, so they stand up better.
