MiniatureZone Gallery Archives (2000 - 2006) - Mark Thomas - Talvisota 1940

This article is one of many articles and gallery contributions from fellow amateur smallscale enthusiasts all over the world that appeared on the old MiniatureZone website during the first six years its existence when there were only a handful of websites dedicated to smallscale models and wargaming.

If you've been around on the internet since back then, we hope you like the nostalgia, and if you´re a newcomer, hope you enjoy looking too.

The game depicts a Finnish Ski Coy. mopping-up a Soviet "motti",which in this case is elements of the Moscow (Military District) 44th Motorised Div. 

The roadbound column consists of Skif & Eric Clark 1/72 & 1/76 scale plastic& resin T-26 light tanks.

The lead two softskins are GAZ-AA's from ACE plastic 1/72; the remainder are PST ZIS-5 and ZIS-6. 

The figures are a mixture of Atlantic, Revell, Airfix, incl. Alpinni,Siberians, Mountain Troops, Pioneers. Several have paper tissue "snow parkas."
