‘What if’ Soviet Mech Diorama!

The first diorama I built after getting back into the hobby. The mech is scratchbuilt and my first attempt at doing so. The Bf 109 is a kit which I built when I was very young so I restored the aircraft but in a crashed, "shot down" state. The d[...]

10th Mountain, M-29 Weasel
