Reinforcements for SPUR?

Just before I began fighting my recent mini-campaign, I 'won' an auction on eBay, with the result that I became the owner of a number of 1:87th-scale PREMO model tanks.

These Russian-made models were made to fit in with the ROCO Minitanks range, and were sold as such when they first became available. The lot that I 'won' included three T-35s, ...



... three T-28s, ...



... and an SU-100, and they will all eventually end up being used in my planned Eastern Front/Great Patriotic War Campaign.



Before then I hope to see them in the service of SPUR, who could certainly have found a use for them in the recent Winter-ish War mini-campaign!

  2. Don M,

    The 'land battleships' are not quite as useful as the T-28s and the SU-100 ... but will look good taking part in victory parades!

    They were also a bit of a bargain as well, and that was very pleasing. (They cost less than £20.00 for the lot, including postage and packing.)

    All the best,

    Bob

  3. Hi Bob,

    When one looks at the T35 one is tempted to (Mis)quote the old "I don't know what they will do to the enemy but by good they frighten me!"

    They do look good in the victory parades though....

    All the best,

    DC

    It is a nice model ... and is quite big even in 1:87th-scale!

    All the best,

    Bob

  5. David Crook,

    I have used a T-35 in a wargame ... and it was a nightmare! It got bogged down very quickly, and once it became immobile it was easily knocked out by its opponents.

    All the best,

    Bob
