The telnyashka! Thank you Georg Eyerman! This is still a work in progress. I will always suck at rendering figures but having fun!
Georg Eyerman and his on line Decalcomaniacs made up some stripes for me to try to suggest the Russian Navy telnyashka in 1/35 scale
This era of Soviet troops from Afghanistan I found interesting as in these photos from the 1980s
Started with the ICM mountain troops kit
Adding Hornet heads, hands and other resin to improve some
prime and paint
Added the stripe decal for the telnyashka shirt. then pastel dusting before a dull coat spray
More figures from this set to follow
Doubled up the stripe decal for the tee
That is a cracking solution for that particular item of clothing!
That blue-white striped tee was so iconic in the 80’s that when I had a summer holiday in Bulgaria by the Black See this was the very first item I bought. Next was vodka, third was food.
Everybody wore this on the beach.
Thought this figure’s decal stripe was too light a blue until I watched movie Red Dawn again this week.
Slow progress on figure group. Seated gunner figure got a hornet head and hands. After prime with black satin enamel
Really liking the progress with these figures.
FYI, we have another figure campaign going if interested.
Group Build Title: Your figure just keeps improving!
Group Build Leader(s):
Group Build Description: Keeping it simple again, this is a successor to our figure build we did last year. Any figure, any scale, keep it clean!
Completion Award: Someone clever will come up with something good!
Last Dull Cote layer on the standing guy. Calling this one of the three done.
This is my first figure attempt with the “green bag camo”
Worked on that seated gunner some more. Here are some work in progress photos taken with a cell phone. Still want to dust all the figures down a bit with pigments. Much fun!
Thinking about a display stand of some kind for the figures. I will try some foam and basswood sheet
