Just finished assembling the first of the Polish armour I acquired at Crisis.

It's a TKS tankette by the Polish firm First to Fight.

The quality of the kit itself is comparable to PSC who distribute them, but the price is a bit higher than their own products.

Image

The German was the only figure I had handy to show the size of this motorized monster.

I've got seven of these, in three varieties, plus five WZ-34 armoured cars in two varieties, so enough to field a large reconnaisance force, or infantry support.

The thing on the right is an extra they threw in with each kit: a tube of glue. There also was a toothpick to apply the glue.
Sadly the glue had dried considerably, and wasn't fit for anything anymore, except dumping. One kit misses its toothpick.

It's a nice little model, essential for 1939 action.

This project of yours seems to going forward in leaps and bounds...albeit very small ones. Nice looking little kit.

Too many other projects going on, Subedai... so everythin goes slowly.

Luckily I finished the final draft of two books last night.

Is the one on the right a prototype?

Obviously, my scratch building efforts should be aimed at larger scales, this was not quite the effect I was aiming for.

Sadly, we don't even have a tankette anymore, everything tank has been sold...

Last night I finished my first Polish tankette platoon.

It's still one understrength, it's supposed to be a command vehicle and two sections of two each.

Image

As you undoubtedly noticed they are 3 TKS's and 1 TK-3.

And please, do not call them speedbumps, it might hurt their tender little ego.

Been painting again the last week or so, made progress on several units.

I'm adding a MG company to my early war Soviets. it will be three platoons of three Maxims plus a rifle team each, plus staff, and naturally a komissar.

Here's the first MG section:

Image

I used teams from different makes to get some variety. There are some minor detailing differences, but rather that than three identical teams, IMO.

Basing yet to be done, ofcourse.

Nearly done are a Polish MG platoon, a German weapons platoon, wagons for the first German units, and partisans are somewhere in the queue as well.

A second Soviet platoon wil be next, i'll be hunting for figures tomorrow, as well as more paint.

Some moe stuff finished tonight.

First, a Polish MG platoon, to support the infantry platoon I did earlier.

Image

I have two more Polish platoons on order, but am still waiting.

This is the first of my German wagons.

Image

For now there will be three, with more added as the amount of units grows.

Both the Poles and the wagon are by HäT.

Thank you, I hope at least long enough to finish the three support units, so I have three about equal forces.

Tonight I finished the German heavy weapons platoon:

Image

2 MG sections, 2 mortor sections, 1st and 2nd command, and naturally the second wagon.

Zvezda, HäT, and whatever else happened to pass by.

Of the Germans I still have to finish one wagon shotgun rider, the Soviet MG company has just been started on.

Since the Soviets call the MG support a company I cannot just add them under the company command, I'll have to add a batallion command to tie it all together.

Shiver, enemies of the Motherland!

The heroic defenders just got reinforcements in the shape of a brace of T-35's.

Nice crisp parts, not a bit of flash.

It is a model to take your time with.

Image

And naturally, after finishing the right hand track, my hobby knife broke in two.

To be continued...

I like the way they've done the tracks- tracks in the smaller sized kits are usually pants in my experience.
Looking forward to seeing this completed.

I know what you mean, I still get nightmares featuring the Airfix Churchill.

I never found the Churchill a problem & I built plenty of them over the years........

That is a nice kit by tbe look of it, Gungnir.

The superstructure is home to quite a bit of fiddly parts, but it's worthwile.

Image

Top and bottom united, and skirts added. It all fitted perfectly.

Is this the moment you realise you've left your watch inside the tank?
