The last few T34 Tanks from (STZ) the Stalingrad Tractor Factory went straight into battle with the assembley crews that manufactured them, they didn't even bother to paint the last few as the losses were so high.

''German Sturmtiger''

by Michael Dady - Nottingham UK

Hi Battlefrontmodels

Here are a few Photo's of my Heng Long Sturmtiger! I know the desert colour
scheme is probably not accurate because it is doubtable whether any sturmtigers
were actually posted to desert locations during ww2! but i think it makes a change
to see a different colour scheme on a sturmtiger rather than the usual grey cammo
effects seen on all the other models! And who knows? one sturmtiger might have
actually been sprayed this colour during it’s active service or even after the war
had ended!!!

The original abbreviation of the National Socialist Party was Nasos. The word 'Nazi' derives from a

Bavarian word that means 'simple minde' and was first used as a term of derision by

journalist Konrad Heiden (1901-1966).

 

KV 85 by Ernie Oliva. London U.K.

 

This KV looks simple but is quite envolved the origional Heng Long RC tank has been heavily

converted to a KV 85 by Ernie.

The turret rear deck and fuel tanks were purchased as a upgrade resin kit  from Profiline Models.

The Barrel is from an HL Panther G model the metal wheels have been modified from a late KV1

as a kit supplied by Forgebear on Ebay.

Also extra track guards have been added onto the front also grab rails have been made from

brass rod and adde to the cupola, it also has front and rear convoy lights and both front and rear MG's flash.

He has also installed an anti-trackrecoil PCB and an extra bright flash unit inside the recoiling 

barrel which also tranverses.

finally the whole lot was brought up to 2.4gHz, all in all qite a few costly add ons for this model.

Plus some diorama extra's as the commander and secondary figures chickens and dog and

bycycle all come together to show that just from the Soviet Tank Factory look.

Nice job Ernie.
