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
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...
