Zvezda and Italeri Artillery

Hi Chaps,

Just a quick update on my progress regarding 20mm WW2. In my absence from this scale a new (to me) manufacturer has appeared called Zvezda. This company is from Russia but my local model shop carries a lot of there kits and availability does not seem to be an issue.

For me the small boxes containing an artillery piece or weapons team are really useful and the kits are detailed and high quality. My huge man fingers always seem to struggle with the smaller parts but I have never claimed to be a model maker.


At £3 per kit these are hard to ignore especially if you are watching the pennies like myself. The kits can also add some variation to your units as the poses are rather different-I have never seen a mortar being carried (that base plate is heavy!).



Later this week I expect an order from Valiant and Grubby tanks to arrive which will complete my own miniature battlegroup, lots of transport and a couple of Stugs but no tanks yet.


Thanks for looking, hopefully I will soon be able to parade all of the lads together.....along with their Russian opponents.

Keep blogging and have a good bank holiday.

  3. Really like the Zvezda kits, I have a few of the 15mm ones and they are rather nice at a very good price point.
