Fort Russe du 12e au 17e Siècle, 1/72 Maquette ZVEZDA 8501

La forteresse russe is ideal for wargames et dioramas. Palisade wall sections are detailed on both sides, et they connect securely to the corner towers provided in this kit. ZVEZDA offers separate wall sections et towers which may be used to enlarge the fort et create town walls. The suburbs of Moscou were surrounded by tall palisade walls as late as 1638. The components of the fort are compatible avec the new land et siege wargame system published by ZVEZDA. All parts are cast in beige plastic which looks good enough if left unpainted, although it’s well worth the effort to paint the fort et weather it appropriately. Modélistes sérieux will want to convert some of the tower roofs et wall sections to add even more visual appeal to this fine model kit.


  • Fort Russe - 235 mm × 235 mm ground space
    • 4 corner towers, 154 mm tall
    • 3 palisade walls, 70 mm tall
    • 1 palisade wall avec gate, 70 mm tall
    • Échelle (8)
  • 8 siege warfare roster cards
  • Colour print-out of siege engines et rubble markers


  • Choix de sujet excellent, le fort russe is suitable for the époque médiévale au de la renaissance en Eastern Europe. The wooden towers may be used to recreate the Cherta border fortifications against Mongol et Tatar invaders.
  • Easy to build: only 67 parts plus 16 soft plastic pegs which connect the wall sections et towers during play.
  • Wall sections et towers may be arranged to create a long town wall across the wargame table ou along one edge of it.
  • The laminated roster cards et print-outs of siege engines are used in conjunction avec des règles de jeu de siège médiévale published by ZVEZDA.
  • The Palisade may be extended using 5 mm dowel sticks.
  • The tower sections do not match perfectly on two of the four sides. The problem may be fixed by sanding the log ends et filling any remaining gaps avec putty ou wax.
  • The loopholes in the towers are not large enough et they are not located at the proper height to allow an archer to fire through them.
  • Corner towers may be used in the center of a linear wall section, but the doorways cannot be rearranged to allow lateral movement through the tower. Cut a new doorway in the opposite tower wall, et use the cut-out to fill the unwanted door.
  • The palisade stakes are too perfectly round pour représenter naturally grown trees, et they are all exactly the same length et diameter. To look realistic, wooden fortifications need to be slightly imperfect. Compare the ZVEZDA palisade avec a reconstructed section of the ancient Roman Limes border fortifications en Allemagne.
  • Mould ejection marks on exterior surfaces need to be filled prior to painting.
  • It will be difficult to place figurines inside the towers if the roofs are glued in place.
