Pip (FOW): forward comrades

Forward Comrades (T-26 light tank company)

Zvezda T26 tanks, Russian tanks made a by Russian company.Flames of War wise this is early war equipement and FOW planning to release a supplement for the German attack on Russia later in the year. I used them for airbrush practice. The models lack detail and are repetive so trying out different tricks with the airbrush should make comparing the tricks easier since there is not much else going on with the model.

The German kill markings are from Mustang game systems
I like the concept but the decal quality could be better
