Stompie, the T34/85 on Old Kent Road, South London
« on: October 14, 2017, 01:59:20 PM »
This is a very nice diorama created by our talented Steve Perry.  The diorama is based the T34/85 (by the name of Stompie) located on Old Kent Road, South London.

Fantastic work!  Steve is really talented, and it's great to see something so original.  The vegetation is really well done.

Thanks for sharing this...

 Lovely job :)
 Stompie's had a good number of paintjobs over the years, the most recent made an appearance on  BBC1's This Week (a political commentary show) this past Thursday.

Wow , great job on the tank and the base . I've seen a few variations of the T-34s paint schemes on Armorama done 1/35 scale . Think I might try the pink one . Hmm , where to find the figures ?

Excellent job.

Really must go and see it, but it is "south of the river" and away from the security blanket of the Underground.
