Monument to Mother Russia

Monument to Mother Russia

I'll accepte the loss of a single point for doing Russian armour, but this was perfect motivation to get at least the 15mm version done.

The tank is stuck on top with 2 magnets and can be swapped for a 20mm version, when I get one and paint one that is. Painted to resemble one of the many monuments that for some reason get the entire running gear done in gloss black and the rest of the tank lightly weathered.
