The project for the next day or three will be to finish a heavy reconnaissance company for my East Germans. Ultimately, I want to do two of them and a scout car company to complete a panzer reconnaissance battalion.
As always, I model units 1:1, so for the heavy reconnaissance company I need a command stand with a BRDM-2U:
Also a stand of two BRDM-2 scout cars:
MV-750 motorcycle/sidecar combinations, each fielding a PKM light machinegun:
In the second company of the battalion, I'll replace the BDRM-2s with BRMs, as was often the case:
Here is my 3mm version:
I'm really pleased with how those tiny motorcycles paint up. Loads of detail on them. It's flabbergasting that they're 1/600!
All together for a group shot, one East German heavy reconnaissance company at 1:1:
That's it for this time. More soon!
