I’ve finished the first batch of my 1/35 figures for Little Cold Wars.
The West Germans are old Airfix and the Soviets are old ESCI. They were painted with acrylics then given a coat of PVA then two coats of gloss spray varnish. This should toughen them enough for gaming.
Next up will be the balance of the Soviets- though I’m undecided between Blue berets for the VDV or Black for the Naval Infantry.
