Stupendous work! I've done some similar vehicles in 1/72 scale. Very toy like compared to these masterpieces!

Thank you .you are way to kind for my ego ..Of course when you are working in smaller scale , it's a little difficult to add details , but I'm sure yours are as nice as mine !.. show us some pics !!

Say, I have a quick question - were the aerosan interiors finished with clear varnish or some other paint?  I know a lot of them used plywood for body panels with steel plate on the fronts.  Being Soviet Russian, I figure they would have done the minimum to finish/protect the interior.

Sure, the wood paint is done using HUMBROL #62 and 63 over a flat white base ! Do not hesitate if you have any other question !

Okay, here are two of them that I did find. The second one is a kitbash of one with the top open and a Boys rifle mounted for defense against light tanks.

Thank you. The red and white on the bars was to keep soldiers from walking into the running blades. I have one more I'm working on, gotta see if I can get more done on it soon.
