Flames of War Russian Armoured Train

Really enjoyed reading the article on a Russian Armoured Train on the Flames of War website.

The article has the historical background on how one of the Polish Armoured Trains was captured by the Soviet Union, re-painted and pressed into service. The article also shows how to paint the model.

I do like the look of the model and the green train with red stars is very effective, and as a model I much prefer it over the three colour camouflage of the Polish version.

Interestingly the train in question was later captured by the Germans and they used it.

  1. To start from – it was originally RUSSIAN train, armoured train # 21, built in 1919 or 1920, “Named after Shaumyan and Dzhaparidze” in the city of Nizhniy Novgorod (later Gorkiy), on the “Krasnoe Sormovo” plant.
    It was captured by Polish army in 1920 during the Polish-Soviet war and renamed.
