Nestor Makhno, the peasant anarchist who lead revolutionary forces against the German/Austrian occupiers, the White Army, the Red Army, and the local nationalists, to liberate a wide swatch of eastern, southern, and central Ukraine, has been one of my heroes since I was a teenager. When I saw that Engineer Basevich produced a model of Nestor Makhno in their set of four mounted leaders of the Ukrainian Revolution in 1/32 scale, I was very excited. Luckily, my local hobby store had the set in stock. I've never worked in 1/32 (usually smaller, 1/72), but this was a fun model to paint. I recently finished this piece and mounted it on a piece of tile.

Very interesting reading, Mahkno. Thanks for sharing.

Your local hobby store stocks the 1/32 plastic figure sets produced by Engineer Basevich?

Very fortunate! Marvelous figures.

No kidding. I am aware of the man, but I am shocked that you have a hobby store that stocks 1/32 plastics.

Thanks all. I got it at Hobby Bunker, Wakefield Massachusetts (though they hadn't moved out of Malden yet when I bought this). They have a huge stock, including a good bunch of Engineer Basevich sets. I was shocked too, to find Nestor Makhno in a hobby store. It was a lucky day indeed

That makes sense. They are more like a hobby warehouse. I've purchased a number of John Jenkins figures from him.
