I thought I needed some figures in the model cabinet, to provide a sense of scale for the tanks. For the Soviet vehicles, I used the “Soviet Tank Crew (1939-1942)” by ICM. I have not used the officer figure yet, as I am not so keen on how he is posed. The two tank men were painted using the paints shown, a combination of airbrushing, brush painting, dry brushing and oil wash. I don’t pretend to be any kind of figure painter, so haven’t attempted to overly detail the faces, for example – more a distinction between the high points and the shadow areas. They are in the cabinet now, although there are plenty of empty spaces for as yet unmade vehicles.
