Robbie,
I can appreciate what your saying, being in the 50+ group now, the hands and eyes just arent what they used to be. :D
However, when it comes to armor, IMHO, they're armong the more easily painted models, with the exception of weathering etc. theres not a 'lot' of detailing that I can see would be an issue.

let me say that i'm not against the 1/100 Scale but for someone like me with a small Motorical impairment it is just to small, I'm glad that can give a 1/72 scale a decent painting. anything smaller than that is off limits I tryed 1/144 planes but that wasn't a big succes.
and Baker company has some decent metal 28mm figs for this era but plastic is more versitile.

GreatI Idea,

I'd want to do the Aussies, they had some mad M113 conversions. including an FSV conversion with a 75mm gun in the turret.

Over all true, but from what I have heard on this forum, the Russians kept their basic uniforms the same from WWII up to some later point in the cold war, so one could probably just give the WWII Russians some AK-47s from the survivor set and have some workable cold war era soviets.
