A project I've been working on for about a month and a half now, for a modeling contest. Fictional Soviet light tank from the post-WWII time period, painted in Hungarian Revolution of 1956 markings. Also included are four tank shell types used by the tank's 85mm D-70 main gun; from left to right - APCR (armor piercing composite rigid), APCBC (armor piercing capped ballistic cap), HE (high explosive), and HEAT-FS (high explosive anti-tank fin stabilized).
The vast majority is scratch built, aside from the 12.7mm atop the turret roof (ripped from Metro 2033) and a few other small parts. I unfortunately don't remember the contributors' names, but thanks to them anyway.
