Soviet heavy metal!

After ten days away again I'm back from dog-sitting for my daughter and I've managed to complete the repainting of a batch of Russian diecasts. These are the cheap models available from "The Works" but the colouring didn't match the rest of my stuff.

I managed to find enough T28s to make a a reasonably sized forces for a game

The T35 is a monster, but the most I'll need for any scenario is a couple

The tiny FAI-M armoured car

Nice collection Will. I have the same but in 1/87th scale. From the ones you just showed I only have in 1/72nd scale a pair of T-35 from S-Models. I tryed to find in the web those chinese die-cast since you posted them the first time but nothing I can order to get to

Proper tanks, Will! They built about 60 T-35s if I recall. Don't know how many were ever running simultaneously though. The Soviets were a bit reticent about that :-)
