Soviets on manoeuvres!

Took some of my Soviet kit to the Grimsby club last week and Malc Johnson, who also runs the club web site, took some pictures. All staged for the camera, they reminded me of the pictures you see of the Soviets on manoeuvres during the cold war.

  1. Lovely - you are tempting me to get out my hordes that I assembled in the late 80s/90s.

    Can I ask what models are the ones in the water holding the bridge?

  2. The model inthe water is from the scotia set"RM0099 BMK-T Bridging Boat and Truck". The set consists of the boat and its carrying truck as well as the waterline version of the boat. A very nice set of an unusual subject. Hpe this helps.
