Aaarghh! I just found that some kind of waxy substance has gotten on to both card decks somehow while they were in the box?!? Doesn’t look like glue as I don’t use anything brown so I have no idea what it could be. Anyway, it’s spilled over the side so the top and bottom cards are hit worst, but really I need to replace the complete decks. Anyone know if replacements are available?
RE: Quantity has a quality all it's own
Armor support: HBG’s excellent T.34, T.26 and KV2 tanks along with the OOB IS-2 Stalin; all painted in basic 4BO green with rust brown tracks. Russian made equipment almost never had red stars painted on apart from a few Guards units. Only lend-lease stuff had stars to ward against friendly fire

Soviet reinforcements, all the way from Siberia. Shown on a ‘painting stick’ which makes painting 20 figures at a time much easier to handle.
I also experimented with twisting the heads and altering foot positions on some to give a more ‘dynamic’ pose. Urra!
RE: Midway US Destroyers
Perhaps the simplest conversion yet: USS Monssen, a Gleaves class destroyer which is basically a Fletcher with the #3 turret replaced with additional light AA guns. Taking the WAS Fletcher, I removed the #3 turret and superstructure aft of it, also the searchlight platforms on the after funnel, being careful to leave the 20mm mounts below them. A new, single searchlight station was mounted in the previous turret location and the after mast added from nylon bristle. I also replaced the overly thick main mast with one cut from nylon bristle.
RE: My Painted Europe 1940 Set
I have looked at I-94’s decals and thought about it… the only ones I have trouble with are the Russian stars. I enjoy hand painting the insignia and I feel like it makes it look more uniform when it’s all paint, but like you said, it would definitely save some time :lol:
Well you could save some effort there as Moscow ordered upper wing stars to be painted out on the eve of the German invasion……plain green was also changed to green with a black disruptive camo pattern http://mig3.sovietwarplanes.com/index.html
RE: Extending/gluing bigger gun on a T/34\. plz help???
Well the turret on the 85 is quite different, it would almost be worth carving a new one out of balsa, although you could build on the existing one using modeling putty. Either way, you need to add a cupola from a small disc of plastic on the left side of the roof in the commander’s position as they all had them.
The gun is best made from a thick nylon bristle from a kitchen broom or similar; a quick trip to the Dollar Store or Pound Shop will provide literally hundreds if not thousands of gun barrels, ship masts, flag poles, spears etc for all your table top armies - without triggering the wrath of she-who-must-be-obeyed
The 85 is mounted lower in the turret than the 76 so cut off the original and make a hole in the center for your new gun tube. And don’t forget to post pictures when you’re done!
