Project Kursk Part 10: Soviet HQ
This term in the wargames club we are making a big push with Battle Group Kursk. The plan is to learn the game, paint up lots of minis and make some terrain boards, leading up to a big game during the next holidays.
All of this gives me a reason to keep going with my own figures for Kursk as well! The latest is a M3A1 Scout car for my Soviet Headquarters.
The figures are from Plastic Soldier Company, and the vehicle is from Battlefront. This was my first experience of making a Battlefront mini, and it made me appreciate nicely engineered plastic kits even more, what with its wonky wheels and all. Mounting the .50 in the centre of the car at the front is a bit of a guess, based on some photos I've found. I'm not unhappy with the final product, although I'm not sure about the shade of green. Is it too green? Am I justified in calling the car Kermit? Advice on a good green for Soviet vehicles would be appreciated!
