Russian T-14 Armata

I’ll just leave these photos here with no explanation …. I know, such a tease.

New Aircraft Models

I just picked up a few new models from Armaments In Miniature. I got an IL-76, a C-130 and a pair of C-17s. These planes will be very handy when I get my airport boards done.

I have not had much time to work on these planes but I can tell already that they are fine models. I’m very happy with their quality and the customer service from the owner Dave was great. In my own business I try to make customer service my #1 priority and I really appreciate it when I deal with a company that does the same.

Here it is assembled. I added some landing gear since the plane will be sitting in my airport.

Getting a little behind in my painting

I’ve got a pretty nice size batch of micro armor that I need to get painted. This batch includes some new GHQ BTR-T (#W90), I’ll probably wait to paint them until I get some 30mm canons from GHQ to replace the MGs that they currently have. I’m trying to get some of the BTR-80/A turrets that have the 30mm autocanon on them to convert these BTR-Ts.

All of the Abrams on the right side of the photo are the TUSK version, the ones on the left are M1A2s that have been upgraded with the TUSK bits on the top of the turret but not the extra armor on the sides of the chassis.
