Retreat! by enc86 Retreat! by enc86
Yukon was there one second and in the next was gone. Looking over his shoulder, Alexei saw the armored Aerosani flip over on its side, and a menacing gray shadow behind them.
"Go comrade, GO!" he screamed to his driver Dmitri, "GOOOOOO damit!" Even tho they couldn't hear over the engine they both knew the tiger was turning its turret towards them and would fire any second.....




Just when I thought I was going to have spring it snowed and got freezing cold. Anyways this didn't put me in the best of moods but figured I would try to use it while I could and did this quick little shoot.

Hello enc86,

Any fan (man or boy) of the G.I. Joe Team, Action Man/Force and so on, should think these models and figurines were REALLY SOMETHING!!!  Photos, captions and effort...very nice!

Glad you like the "Witches..." and thank you for adding them to YOUR collection of "favourites!"

Sincerely,

Art of Two M's

It seems like adversity has made Russia one of the great innovators.  Some of it isn't pretty but it sure is robust and it works.  Awesome.

I haven't built kits in years and I'd love to make one of them; plus the big armored looking version. There are so many great kits out there now.

enc86 Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2013
there are alot of great kits out there now a days. and with the internet getting them is a lot easier.
the small aerosani was under $10us and the bigger armored one was somewhere under $20. both very nice kits and worth every penny.

Very reasonable. I was buying Tamiya tank kits back in 1971 when they were $10 or so. I haven't checked any of them lately.

Tamiya is still a great brand. most of their kits from the 70's - 80's are under $20us.some of the newer kits run from 30-50 but are worth it.

NEMAHTY? whats that?
Reply
:iconenc86:
enc86 Featured By Owner May 27, 2013
this kit manufacturer(trumpeter) has a habit of making the marking wrong or of little historical value(it looks cool tho)

someone did tell me the "NEMAHTY" refers to a brave young Russian who died during combat and some Russian vehicles printed his name as a tribute.

oh, so its not just some weird Russian letters thrown on to make it look all WW2y?
Reply

enc86 Featured By Owner May 27, 2013
i have heard that its not and it does have some significance . i wasn't able to dig anything up but i only can read English. that was what i was told anyways.

but this brand has been know to play fast and loose with he Russian letters. think they jut make things look cool and say thats good enough. alot of times their color charts are wayyyyy off to.
