Retreat from Leningrad

Recommended Posts

I had an absolute blast with this one, enjoying every step of the way. It was so much fun it was almost obscene!! LOL

Apart from a couple of braile scale tanks this is my first completed tank and my first serious attempt at proper weathering.

The tank kit is Tasca's 'German Pz.Lpfw.Ausf.L "Luchs". Late Version. The base is Mini Arts 'Country Road' and the crew is Mini Arts German Tank Crew. Winter 1943-1945

Apart from the actual construction of the three kits, everything else was a new learning curve.

 

Lot of photos but then there is lot's to see I suppose.


February 19th 1944. Somewhere in the Soviet Union. The 872 day seige of Lenningrad ended on January 27th and the Germans are being pushed back by the Russian army and their mighty T34 tanks.

Our crews tank has suffered badly in the three fearsomely savage winters since the seige began. Moreover, long supply lines means it hasn't been serviced in a long time and is now unreliable.

The crew are dirty, disheveled, dispondent and scared. Now their vehicle has shed a track and they must make repairs or risk being taken prisoner.

Very 'cool' Al (pun intended). I love the broken track.

 

Thanks Dallas. I think the broken track adds visual interest.
