I am finding my Zvezda BA10 1/100 armoured cars a tad too small so I am looking forward to getting a couple of Troops of the Austin-Putilov to replace them.
Have a great day, FPR
I'm looking forward to Strelets' Austin Putilov as well. But I don't think there was an overlap between the Austin Putilov and the BA10. Wasn't the BA10 made just before WW2? The Austin Putilov was retired about 1930.
There were some Garford Putilovs used in WW2. Maybe Strelets would consider making one of those?
I will buy some,but only to serve as encouragement to strelets to keep expanding the range, preferably with a Rolls Royce armoured car,hint hint.
Would rather see a Garford Putilov, now thats an armoured car widely used during WW1.. not so the Austin Putilovs one for the civil war I think...
we consider making a Garford armoured car as well.
Will definitely be getting some of these Austin Putilov ACs (and Garfords too if they're made) for my RCW project. Schneider CAs for the SCW too. Much more useful than all those heavy artillery pieces as they can actually be used on the game table...
Oh I agree - each to their own - I was just speaking of my own personal preferences and wants (won't say "needs" as I probably have too many projects on the go! :) )
I would raise the question though; these heavy artillery pieces seem to be produced in wargaming style - quick builds lacking detail and perfect accuracy (thickness of wheels etc.) but great value for money. That's why I find the WW1/Interwar light field arty from HaT so appealing. There are other manufacturers that do highly detailed kits (being correspondingly expensive) that would seem more aimed at modellers and dioramacists.
Just my own personal tupp'orth ha'penny, however agree it is good to see anything in this scale other than the usual suspects remade ad finitim...
