"Defenders" Russia 1942
Scale: 1/72 - 1/76
This project began when
a friend sent me the resin base as a gift. This is an artillery
emplacement, with recon from 6th Panzer. A Quadruple 20mm gun and the MG
42 are for defence, and an MG crew is running to replace a destroyed one.
Observations and orders are being given, while recon is waiting. Artillery
is firing. The base was made with few modifications. I used the Panzer II
F from Matchbox out of the box, the Fujimi quadruple 20mm guns with new
seats, the BMW motorcycle was assembled without the sidecar and the 105mm
gun came from the outstanding Revell Germany German Artillery.
Modifications on the gun were inspired on an outstanding article by
Stephen Brezinski at Miniaturezone Website and some pictures. Figures from
Italeri, Revell Germany and Hasegawa. Two "Hiwis" are helping the Germans.
Armor was painted with Tamiya and figures with Humbrol.
