I was originally looking at raising set up for 1941 on the Eastern front but have decided to move to 1943 instead and I am planning on using primarily Plastic Soldier Company kit. I am thinking that a single box of infantry and support weapons for both the Germans and the Russians will suffice, supplemented with PSC vehicles and with some from Airfix and Armourfast where applicable. I shall base the figures individually in order to maximise the number of systems they can be used for.
I do not intend building great car-parks of tanks, just enough for a good variety to be represented. Choosing 1943 as the base year also opens up the Mediterranean as well so if I fancied British and Americans I wold be able to bolt these on as required.
On a similar vein I am looking at using Perry Plastics ACW for a Russo-Turkish War set up; again, along similar lines in respect of the number of figures involved. In effect both projects will be driven by what I will be able to use rather than what I would like. As yet no funding has been allocated to either of these projects and until my work situation changes nor is there likely to be. I have more than enough to be getting along with though in the meantime!
