The telnyashka! Thank you Georg Eyerman!

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

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.

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
