Koblenz on Rhine

Hello, and welcome to my site !


Covering the Engines of the Red Army (or »Workers and Peasants Red Army« RKKA, called officially) in the Great Patriotic War in scaled multi-view colour profiles is quite a challenge.

The domestic vehicles alone, armour and softskins, would fill dozens of pages, but, often overlooked, the Soviet Union received some 450,000 vehicles (trucks, jeeps, tractors, tanks, armoured cars etc.) from their allies (U.S.A., Great Britain, Canada) in World War 2 as well.

So, with more than 1000 single drawings finished by now I have only scratched the surface.

Anyway, as a former military modeller I have learnt to always focus just the kit in work and not the dozens of unbuilt ones lying in the cellar.

Starting my vector graphics program (the awesome British XARA Xtreme 5.1) for a new drawing is quite similar to starting a new kit some 25 years ago.

So, I hope you, dear visitor, will have as much fun while regarding the profiles as I had and still have while creating them !

Final note : I'm neither militarist, nor communist, just interested in military history.


Comments and suggestions welcome,
... as well as any hint to original sources (photos, drawing, technical manuals) on Russian trucks and armour !
