20mm WW2 BT-7 Soviet Tanks, back to work and Resolutions!

Back to work today, a quiet Christmas, a quite New Year (except for the shagging fireworks!), painted some 20mm Soviet BT-7 tanks from Pegasus Hobbies for the painting challenge (Ray has cheated twice already!), Santa wasn't too bad to me either.

I don't post too much from home because the SWMBO has knackered 3 desktops so far and now has a laptop for wandering around poultry forums but it doesn't like blogger, so I visit more than comment at home because the laptop wouldn't survive the angry repeated typing.

I will start wandering around blogs again today, hope you had a good Christmas (you're not obliged to) and a good New Year (same thing), ignore those resolutions but to me me it's like the lyrics from a song "another day older and deeper in debt!"

Have a good one people but only if you want to!

  10. Happy New Year!

    You should ditch all this WW2 nonsense, SCW is were it's at. Even Ray could be classed as a adequate commander by the standards of leadership in that war.

    The BT-7 rules the table in SCW. Well it would if the Russian instructors spoke Spanish... or the crews had ever driven anything before... or if anyone had any ideas regarding armoured warfare...

  22. tanks rock... i gave up on the resolutions years ago... i used to make up stuff of bad things that i would give up... like no more eating road kill... ahh the year was 1997.

  23. But it's great to have you back Angry. And it's nice to know you got in a good shag for the New Year. Tanks and resolutions. Those two things go together in my mind for some reason.

    ReplyDelete
  24. they look good. do the wheels move?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Welcome back, Angry! You really can paint a mean tank. That slightly dusty look that makes them look like they're actually being used in war... I can't even comprehend how you do that.

  40. A BT-7 is cool. Six BT-7's are patriotic. Six BT-7's and a Red Army wench are GLORIOUS. For the Motherland, Comrade!

    (Oh, and great paintwork, too!)

  41. Very crisp models, nice paint job. The speed and 45mm gun makes these fun on the table; just avoid being shot.
    I've installed Linux on my laptop, runs like a dream.
