This has come on nicely since I last stuck my head round the door Monica. I like the camo on the half track and the figures look great as well.

Looking very good, as usual, Moni. If I might though, the sign on the factory. The font is way to modern...I am sure that you can find one a bit more time relevant...I know its a small thing but it is kind of 'in your face' ...What does it say?  :|

It was just that the lettering seems to modern, If it is just a "place holder" for your thought, no problem :smiling3:

You can set the keyboard to Russian and then set the typeface and font as normal


алпкзйьаду аькуйз жицу


The trick is to have a key board map so you know which letter will be which.


You can also select the specific letters using insert symbol the symbols should have Cyrillic letters.

Nice work Monica. The base looks great. Really like the stairs and railing. Don't know any Russian so can't help with the sign.

Coming along great Monica, and to be honest I never gave the lettering a second thought.

Sorry Moni, not my intention :sad: ,  all the languages should be available but you do need to dig through settings to add them to the "active list" for selection


Easiest for you would be to use google translate to get the Cyrillic text and then copy paste the text into a wordprocessor and play with the fonts to get something you like.


государственный тракторный завод


That is how I did this which apparently says state tractor factory.

Im pretty sure they had stencils back then so, having a typed sign would be accurate, also calligraphy is an art dating back hundreds of years, I would suggest you keep the typed sign instead of the hand written one, as it looks better and probably is more accurate.

ta Bob,I would think so as well,but what I think is I,used modern,and where that ,what Dave has done is older style,and it dose look better,


in the cyrillic text,I did try find images of old factory to see the style,but google is not real my friend and some times,just dose not give,


the images I,m trying to find, >:sad:


thank you both,for your help,and is greatly appreciated, :D
