As promised here are the tank brigades for my upcoming toy tank corps. I've gone for a mix of Lend-Lease M4s & T-34s to reflect the large numbers of EmChas the Soviets received. It also reflects what models I had available at the start of this project! Always an important consideration for a make-do-and-mender like myself. All the toys are from Armourfast. Which is, as far as I'm concerned, a glorious company. One that releases quick build toys with the minimum of faff and the reduced potential to send me into a demented frenzy is ok by me. Unlike the Revell PzKpw III/M which I'm building at the moment......

Some pics!

On to Berlin!



More when I have it!


  1. At your current production rates you'll soon* have as many Russians as me! Forward to te West comrade!

    * in about 5 years.

    1. Tim, nothing can stop us now! Seriously I have to thank you for the advice on painting: black undercoat and then an almost dry brushing of the main colour. It really speeds up the production of toys.

  2. Very professional looking work James. Lovely bases as well.
