Vengeance on the Vistula begins!

The Kubus has arrived!  And now it has been prepped for tonight's facebook live session.

The cast was really wonderful, and just about the easiest resin kit that I have ever assembled!  The lines are all very clean, and the pieces were all straight and perfect.

Here's a link to the original blog post that discusses this recent kickstarter campaign, with links, etc.  There is an extension on the ability to pledge to this fantastic Warsaw Uprising campaign, so there's still time!

There are no precise color images of the original Kubus for obvious reasons, but some of the best guesstimates put it like this.  So, I will try to paint this guy up tonight before your very eyes.  I will be using regular brushes instead of an airbrush, since not everyone has them.  

The primary medium will also be acrylic paints, because that will let me get to more of the vehicle, including weathering, etc.

Until recently, this is what the hulk of the Kubus looked like.  I have even found images of a 1/35 scale model of the Kubus rendered to look like this scene.

There are a variety of options for the commander, and for weapons.  This image shows you what those are like.

So, stay tuned for late this evening (about 2am central time), or breakfast in the UK and dinnertime in Australia!

I have links to previous facebook live sessions on my patreon page:

  1. Fascinating story... and very sad. I can't imagine how brave you'd have to be to go up against the German army in something like this, however ingenious it was.
