More of the Duke's First Models of the Year

Postby Duke Maddog » Mon Jan 13, 2020 8:23 pm

Happy New Year everyone! I posted already the completed Russian Glider in the Aircraft Forums already. Now here are the other models I finished, all vehicles and all Russian!


To start, I finished two more Aerosans for the game I plan on doing. Here are the two 1/72 scale RS-8 GAZ 98K Aerosans by ACE:

Image

Moving on, I was able to get some armor done as well. This first armor one is the Modelcollect 1/72 scale Russian BMP-3 Early model APC:

Image

Image

Image

Next is another APC, this time the Zvezda 1/72 scale T-15 Armata APC:

Image

Image

Image

That APC was developed from the hull, suspension ans engine of the T-14 Armata main battle tank.

Finally another Zvezda 1/72 scale kit of the BMPT Terminator AA and AT vehicle:

Image

Image

Image

Now I can move on to all seven of the big Russian eight wheeled trucks I've been doing.

First is the most colorful one. This is the A&A Models Russian AA-60 Airfield Fire Truck and Rescue vehicle:

Image

Image

Image

Next up is Modelcollect's 1/72 scale Russian 9K728 Iskandar K cruise missile truck:

Image

Image

Image

Now Modelcollect's 1/72 scale KZKT 7930 Heavy Cargo Truck:

Image

Image

Image

Now the Modelcollect 1/72 scale MAZ 7411 Heavy Cargo Truck:

Image

Image

Image

Another MAZ truck; the Modelcollect 1/72 scale Russian 56K6E 'Baikal' Air Defense Command Post:

Image

Image

Image

A Third MAZ truck, the Modelcollect 1/72 scale Russian A-222 130mm Coastal Defense Gun 'Bereg':

Image

Image

Image

And the final MAZ truck is the Modelcollect 1/72 scale MAZ 7410 Tractor with the CHMZAP-9990 Trailer:

Image

Image

Image

And here it is with a load. It isn't the load that comes with the model; I still have to build that. It shouldn't be long, but at least this truck is done:

Image

And that completes my listing of the first models I completed for this new year. Thanks all for looking in, comments are welcome.

Mark, this is another great batch of builds from you. The Aerosans look like the belong in a Bond film opening. But all the other hardware... I should be on a road watch team calling in an air strike on them... Excellent work my friend!

What Carlos said. I saw these last evening, but could not think of what to say
To make each build less crappy than the last one. Or, put another way, "Better than the last one, not as good as the next one!"..

Thanks Floki! I have also been looking forward to seeing them complete! What a thrill to finally add them to the shelf.

Thanks Kevin! I hadn't ever seen these modern trucks either until Modelcollect released them. It is such a thrill having them in my collection now.

Thanks Carlos! I don't know about a Bond film, but sometime this year they will be chasing a German armored train with several others in a game I'm working on.... :lashed: As for the road watch team, be sure to alert the incoming strike about the BMPT Terminator.. that could ruin their day.... :whiteflag:

Thanks Lyle! This kind of quantity does tend to render one a bit speechless. On another Forums, I got 18 views and no comments at all after posting all these. I really struck everyone dumb over there! :giggles: :lashed:

Thanks Stuart! I am thrilled to have those MAZ trucks in my collection too. The are so essentially Russian!

For those who are in the SoCal area; you'll be able to see these finished models in person at Brookhurst Hobbies' Spruefest and the Pasadena Valleycon.
