painted and based this lovely wee thing over the weekend. Head swaps on the crew to make them Civil War isntead of WWII I am pretty pleased with it, even based it myself.
Loads of pictures on the blog.

Very nice! I like that you included the wheel ruts.

Beautiful. I want to do RCW in 1/71 plastics. Anyone know if that 25mm "too small for 28s" Eureka Tachanka would work with 1/72?

Henry Martini20 Jun 2020 5:39 p.m. PST

I don't 'know', but as 1/72 is 25mm I would say 'yes'.

Thanks guys, glad someone spotted the wheel ruts, I do like to add a bit of detail like that. In terms of the Eureka fittign with 1\72 I cant help thinkign it will be a bit a big, a lot depends on how fussy you are, I am a bit too fussy for my own good sometimes.

Do those things pull forward when fired? It'd be amusing if the troika had to be braced to counter-act!

The Russians used loads of these and again in WW2 so wither way they must have been effective.

Very nice model. I have the Eureka model and it is too small for 28mm (if you are a purist) would be big for 1/72 -20mm.

For a good movie of the RCW, with one of these in action, check out "Two Comrades were Serving."

Will do cheers.
