Painting progress Comrades!
The M3 Half-track is done. Think I went a little overboard with the snow effects, but otherwise I’m happy enough with it. The model is a resin by Blitzkrieg Miniatures and required only a little clean up, mainly on the underside where there were some semi-ugly mold plug things, but aside from those just some slight resin flash. My only real criticism of this model is that it didn't come with any crew minis, but I just went and made a driver out of a plastic soviet tank commander with a headswap. Painting was all done with a brush and markings were unused decals from my T34/85.
|There was a picture of the back end too, but when I got to work to do the picture editing, I then realised it was out of focus. So, meh.|

Here's the current standing of the Winter Soviets project in my display case:
|What do I have planned for the gap at the front? Well I am happy you asked, because....|
I also got these 5 painted up and since taking these pics have dressed their bases. Five to go and then the squad of 10 will be done and I’ll start working on some Winter Germans which will be a nice change of pace.
