Tamiya 1/35 SU-85 Beutepanzer was created by Andrew
Here's some pics of my just completed SU-85 Beutepanzer. This was built almost OOB, with the only addition being an armorscale SU-85 Mantlet and barrel. Inspiration for the scheme came from the Wydawnictwo Militaria SU-85/-100/-122 book. Painted using Tamiya acrylics and weathered using MIG pigments. Decals from a 1/32 Fw-190 and the spares box







It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

Looking good. I really want to do that with my KV-2 but I feel like I'll pigeonhole myself, finally buy something Soviet and then just do it in German livery anyway.

My wife calls me a curmudgeon. I haven't looked it up but I assume it means "fun loving and free spirited" or some such twaddle. I inform and perform over at www.militarymodels.co.nz and stick my oar in here as well. My passion is WWII 1/35 armour but I'm coming around to liking the odd 1/32 thing...

Nicely done. Its worth having some of these about though as everyone does the Russian version. Ironically, when I get to my Hummel, I'm going to do a captured Russian one.

Thanks Dean B)

Just do it with your KV-2. There's still plenty of time left for you to model Soviet stuff after that :woohoo:

Cheers Tony B)

Yeah, it was the huge Balkenkruez on the hull sides that appealed to me, almost like driving around with a bullseye on the side of you :lol:

I wondered from the colour if it wasn't a Cyberhobby one.
