Bolt Action! 28mm T-34/85 Tank Platoon

The Imperfect Modeller’s post featuring his US Willy Jeep got me thinking about my own limited assembly of WW2 plastic kits. I then found that this post was still Photophucked, so I repaired it, noticed it was nearing 4 years old, and decided to shine the spotlight on it again, however briefly.
