While painting the recent batch of North Koreans - which could equally well serve as WW2 Soviets - my thoughts turned to the battalion support weapons. While soft plastic infantry Russian figures armed with rifles, SMG and even LMG are easy to come by, heavier weapons are in short supply. A quick internet search turned up this useful looking set from Tamiya which contains not only an AT rifle but also a wheeled Maxim gun.
As is usually the case with Tamiya kits, the instructions are clear and the mouldings crisp.
The Comrades are now bracing themselves for an assault from - not the Germans, Americans or even the Japanese - but my paintbrush! Such is the horror of war.
