Zvezda Soviet 85 mm Anti-Aircraft Gun
Zvezda 1/72nd scale Soviet 85-mm Anti-Aircraft Gun in plastic. This is a nice model of a gun that is similar to the famous German 88.
You only get one in the box but it builds up into a nice weapon. Assembly does not require glue, but I used regular model glue just to be sure.
Built up on the base. Right now I only have two of these guns, but I am planning to buy at least four. I need to find out more about their organization before I commit to more that four.
You get a four man crew, #4 is seated on the gun. I make little plastic bases for them so they are not glued to the gun base.
A nice pair of AA Guns, I would like a larger crew, but I looks like some of my tired old Airfix Soviet Infantry will be re-assigned from infantry to AA gun crew work.
