More Hungarians

I've been on a bit of a painting roll. Allocating an hour or two most evenings during the week makes a  big difference. As a consequence, the WW2 Hungarian project is complete - for now!

First up we have the parachute assault section.

Then the support units - mortar, HMG, command and spotter.

A Csaba armoured car. Named after a son of Attila the Hun, more than 100 of these were built in Hungary before and during WW2. They were armed with a 20mm cannon and a co-axial MG. This is the Warlord model. It is a resin model, I won't buy their awful plastic kits. It went together pretty well other than the usual problem with lugs for the guns. They have made a bit of an effort with this one, but as my teachers used to say - could do better!

Turan II medium tank. This is the later model with a 75mm gun. Still obsolete by the time, it entered service, but a big improvement on the MkI. This is a 3D printed model from P&G Miniatures. This is an excellent, robust wargame model. It comes in two parts and arrived with virtually no flash. Very impressed and will be a return customer.

I see Warlord have just brought out an ATG and crew, so I will probably return to this project. However, I need to start work on some opponents - the Soviets!

  1. Very nice paint job. Look at mad Bob for more Hungarian models. Another possible enemy for the Hungarians would be the late war Romanians who hated the Hungarians with a passion.
