T-28 Leningrand front - ICM 1/35

Few years ago ICM has produced the soviet T-28 multi turret tank in scale 1/35. I like the multi turret tanks so I bought one thinking to make it in winter camo. Many of them saw action near Leningrand front first against finish forces and then against germans just before the famous siege. It was a slow tank already obsolent against PzIII & PzIV so soviet defenders used them like armored defence posts taking advantage of multiple turrets. As the german forces went closer and closer to the city of Leningrand destroying the bunkers and the other defensive posts T-28 crews took away the machine guns and were destroying the rest of the tanks. Only few abandoned T-28s were been re-grouped in finish or german units.

AKAMAT visit KARDITSA TOWN!






During the weekend of 8th-9th of December, our team visited Karditsa town, to meet friends modellers of the local Modelling Club.
Karditsa modelling club founded in July 2012 and since then, they presented an impressive amount of work, involving, apart from giving a common origin to the local modellers, seminars for children, with the aid of the Municipality of Karditsa who offer a teaching room and a modelling bazaar.
The members of the Club offer their time, money and knowledge to the children of Karditsa, aiming at expansion of our beloved hobby in their town.
Congratulations guys, keep the good job up! We totally support you!
