ZIS-3 76mm gun

The small batch of Soviet kit I completed recently included this Light Artillery (or Anti-Tank) Regiment,  The ZIS-3 76mm gun is a Britannia metal kit, but I can't remember where the (metal) crew figures came from.  The truck started off as an Efsi die-cast Ford 'T' van before having it's bodywork ripped off and replaced with various bits of balsa and plastic.  I'm glad it looks OK (well I think so), as I made several of them!

A very nice couple of models. Just the thing to try to stem a German Panzer attack!

All the best,

I'm sure the Panzers are just itching to have a go at it!

Looks good to me!

Tim, nice stands. Very impressive effort with the Zis.

It looks the business!

Most of my Soviet lorry fleet consists of scruffy die casts, so these chaps aren't being too hard done to.

Tim Gow said...

Thanks - Just the usual quick and scruffy paint job.

Yeah, nice models mate, actually I don't have any of these, but still it's good to still have things to collect

Tim Gow said...

It seems we all still have stuff to collect!

I picked up quite a few of these trucks over the years - they crop up quite regularly in junk shops and charity shops for about £1 .
