Tomorrow is Orthodox Easter.

Traditionally Easter Eggs are hard-boiled, coloured and then used for decoration and in "Eastern Egg duels"(hitting eggs).

Easter Eggs are coloured either on Holy Thursday, or on Holy Saturday, traditionally by ladies.

Well, I have 2 living in my house, but they pretended to be too busy (I would say they're just too lazy) to colour the eggs and told me they expect me to do this...

Now what would you expect from a modeller, who has to colour Eastern Eggs:


To add a pint of historicity: the "Nazi" egg is cracked, while the "Soviet" and the "Bulgarian" are bruised.
Thus the outcome of an egg duel will mirror the outcome of Unternehmen "Fruehlingserwachen"(the last offensive in East-Hungary March 1945).

My girls were shocked and told me I'm crazy...
My modelling buddies laughed a lot...

Happy Easter!

Not enough weathering Angel. Maybe a filter and some mud? And no Scratch built components at all? You are slipping!!

Next time-If I'm allowed access to the Eggs-to-be-coloured again , Peter!

Will think how to add a set of tracks to each egg...
