I’ve recently finished a platoon of five T34/85’s. These are PSC 15mm plastic models. They work well with BattleFront, but unfortunately I purchased these before realizing they aren’t available in the list I am building (Udarny). Oops! I do like how they turned out, FWIW. These are the first plastic tanks I’ve painted since the mid 1990’s, technique is a bit rusty but YouTube is a great help. I based the tanks on BF large bases to give them a little more heft. While not necessary, I like the look with the bases better than without, and it does protect them a bit.
