1⁄35Saving Efreitor Ryansky
This is my latest dio, the simple base is completely selfmade. The idea for this dramatic scene came from the Warriors (?) figure set where a medic is pulling a crew member out of an KV-2 turret. As I had a BT-7 in stock I used the MR Modellbau conversion set for changing it into a BT-7A close support artillery vehicle. As I wanted to depict a vehicle who got immobilized during driving downhill I needed to fix the complete suspension arms with the terrain features. The normal tracks didnīt fit anymore after this treatment so I needed to use single link tracks. I decided to use MINIARMīs single link resin tracks; they are much nicer than the original kit ones but very fragile! Actually after several broken links I glued every link with KRISTAL KLEAR which worked perfectly and is invisible after it dries. The infantry are from two different TANK figure sets and are of superb quality. The dead crew member hanging partially out of the drivers hatch is an old resin figure from a Russian company whose name I have already forgotten; I changed the arm and body a bit to fit properly for this scene. I hope you like this rather dramatic scene as much as I do; I have tried to show the ugly side of war as there is nothing glorious about it.
