Zvezda BA-10

This weekend saw me finishing off these BA-10s by Zvezda, instead of writing an essay, I bought them as an experiment as I have some BA-10s by Command Decision already, but I wanted to see how the Zvezda ones matched up against them. They are quite nice little models, go together well and look the part. I am a bit disappointed with the gaps in the bodywork, it's something I could have fixed if I had the inclination. Also I found the headlamps incredibly fiddly to put in place so I did away with them altogether. It's OK, my opponent will never notice...



Also, the other day I was working in the office when one of the people we teach brought in his collection of militaria, I thought I'd share it here. Sometimes there are perks to knowing weidros...

  1. Nice models there. My grandad collected military swords and now I'm wondering which one of my uncles got them when he passed. I'd like to have them.

    1. Thanks Anne, glad you liked em! I'm not a collector myself, but it's always nice to see these kinds of things. It may be worthwhile trying to track down your grandads!

  2. Nice. Hope you are not playing solo with these AFVs! (Re "My opponent will never notice.")

    1. Ha ha, thanks Jay. No, I do have a flesh and bones opponent. I just haven't had much chance to play a game in a few weeks. When I have finished my present essay we plan on playing something at least!
