The usual 35ers bunch

As usual at the end of last year (2017), I finished a few 1/35 figures.

This time, only Russians. Soviets to be more specific.
Here are a general presentation on a smaller scale VIP transport GAZ car.

The infantry was thought to be used on a tank. They are 6, dressed for winter. It's a Dragon set from the '90s.
I tried to obtain different shades of green to represent what was a normal state of fact at that time. Funny but that was the situation also in the army of the Socialist Republic of Romania, when I was drafted in 1986.
The other set of 4 guys with antitank rifles are also from Dragon but closer to our times. The sculpture at faces and uniforms was better, but the solutions chose for putting the rifles in their hands was at least uninspired.
The 2 seated guys dressed also for winter but one in long coat and the other sporting a WWI bonnet, are a resin set thought to be used in the Aerosan model (from Kirin model range if I remember correctly).

Beside them I finished also a Tsar Bomb - the Soviet RDS-220 hydrogen bomb (code name Ivan[3] or Vanya), the most powerful nuclear weapon ever created. Its test on 30 October 1961 remains the most powerful explosive ever detonated. It was also referred to as Kuzkina mat (Russian: Кузькина мать; "Kuzma's mother"),possibly referring to First secretary Nikita Hrushchev's promise to show the United States a Kuzkina mat (an idiom roughly translating to "We'll show you!") at a 1960 session of United Nations General Assembly.
The kit is from A-Model and it's a short run that made me work a long and unpleasant time.
The trailer carrying it has 34 wheels, with sinkmarks and flash. Also, the "functional" directional dolly from the front and the 2 ramps in the back are a nightmare to make work.

I have to stop building such time consuming projects.
