1/35 Russian 2K12 Kub SA-6 “Gainful”

June 29, 2017 in Armor

Trumpeter 1/35th scale SAM-6 A.A.Missiles, it’s actually Russian made 2K12 “Kub” SA-6 vehicle-launch SAM.

Accidentally learned about a camouflage pattern which I never knew – the Камуфлированный Летный Маскировочный Комбинезон or KLMK. It was developed in the 1960s by the Soviet Union to overcome the widespread use of night vision optics and devices by NATO countries. This one-piece camouflage suit was soon to become one of the most widely used and revered devices out of the Soviet Union.

KLMK is used in many different roles and by several of the Russian special forces groups. It is often worn by sappers, snipers, and sometimes regular infantry.

And FAILED on figure painting…yea.

Simple OOB, thanks for viewing!

  1. That’s a long way from a “fail” in ANY respect….fantastic paint job (and I never knew that the Russians had specific ‘uniforms’ for their crew members). 🙂

  2. Great attention to detail.

  3. Kitti, Great looking model. I’m curious, is this a missile launcher or a “hooter hauler” ?, its nicely done either way !

  4. Its a fine build,as I know I built one long,long ago,the pipes and the hand rails a very tricky,and you have mastered them,If memory serves me it is the same one that brought down a civilian aircraft,some years back,the only thing I did not do was use a crew member as nice as yours,I didn’t take much notice of the figures paint work was looking at something else,thanks for posting.

  5. Fine build Kitti, like the finishing touch with the figure so you get a feeling for size of both!

  6. Great humour! This one tells a story … or two. Beautifully painted & executed, Kitti!

  7. By the way, there is nothing wrong with the figure you painted …

    😉

  8. Good lookin pair o missiles.

  9. Kitti, I have just looked through all of your recent posts – absolutely stunning. Really ‘contrasty’ paint jobs and outstanding detail. Awesome! The way you have photographed and presented them does real justice to the subjects – very impressive!

  10. Now that is really cool! I love the camo, and the attention to detail is fantastic!
