River passage

Hi,
Inspired by this photo
Image

from the book about polish army in Soviet service I want to make small dio with the scene showing what was before.
The first Isu-152. I choose model set from Zvezda. It was a pity, it's a model with all closed doors. As always in armoured vehicles with the tracks I'm afraid about making - tracks. Zvezda proposed something strange and interesting.
Image

It's good and strange, but works! Must be careful, and try two times, but not more. In third fitting my tracks said "NO" and became track in two pieces. Even after this failure I think Zvezda made good trick for easy tracks.
Now my Isu is in washing and in anything what makes model "used".
Image

Decals are from ToRo models, polish producer. Good, cheap, correct. Best for the polish vehicles from pre-war until present time.

Casting. As you see, figures are from various sets Orion, Strelets, Ultima Ratio.
Image

Uniforms were almost the same as in Soviet Army, except, hats, and some jackets.

Nice Idea.
Will do something like that too in the future.

I build only one Zvezda tank. A Panther. And follow the instruction for fitting the track like a slave.
And it worked very very well. To my surprise I have to mentioned. Good detailed and clever done by Zvezda.
With the closed hatches. I`ll be with you. A real downside of all her nice models.

I like your casting.
I do that similar. Put the heroes on, in, at the vehicle, scene, with and without base.

The Red box figures are great in different useful pose. Well paint by you.
