NB This post was originally drafted in February! So it appears out of chronological sequence.
A recent trip to The Muckleburgh Collection in Norfolk resulted in the purchase of a T-34/85, in 1/72, by Trumpeter. Both that and the Muckleburgh trip will be blogged in dew coarse, so to speak. In the meantime, having just built some US matériel, I figured why not some Russian stuff also? Apart from the aforementioned T-34, the only Soviet stuff in my stash is the ZIS-5-BS, under consideration here.
As usual with my builds, this remains unfinished: the fire extinguishers need some shading, and I need to mask/paint the lettering - as the kit came without any decals (so, number plates are lacking as well!) - on the side of the fuel tank. But, as basic and simple as it looks, I'm actually fairly happy with how this kits turned out.
