  1. I may have found out the reason for the lack of images from the Napileonic era regarding military units of Wallachia and Moldavia at the beginning of the 19th century. The armies of the two principalities were recreated only in 1830.
  2. Thank you! And for this one, I need to say a big thank you to the guys from Tanks Encyclopedia community, for helping me on the technical side, learning me some tricks and giving advice on the color palette.
  3. Looks like something I have in my family collection
  4. I know the best restorations are made by professional restorers, but currently I can't do that because of a few reasobs: 1. Most live in other countries, and I have to use a different currency than the one in Rinania 2. I'm underage 3.

At the moment, I consider that the images I started doing can be decent, especially with a bit of help from a re-enactment specialist I'm friends with.
  5. New image completed today. Currently, I am using this hobby in order to relax after a stressful day at school, but maybe I can find a way to use these images.

The painting itself depicts rulers of the Romanian Principalities before 1859.
  8. This is just said. Nothing else to say. It shows the degree intelligence and culture (or lack of) my compatriots have. One of the 13 Panther tanks received in 1946 was turned into a bench in a park (at least it's wheels). The rest of the tank probably got to the scrapyard a long time ago. Btw, should this thread be here or in Officers' Lounge?
  9. It feels a bit different when you read about the battle and you know that you had a family member who fought there and most probably even met his end, together with most of his comrades . It made me think quite a lot about what happened on that final days, and gave me the idea that at least once I should get to Przemysl and see the fortress. I made some studies in local archives and works that treat the history of the area I live in, and that confirms the guys I was looking for in "Unknown Austro-Hungarian uniform" were part of the 23rd Honved Regiment, 3rd battalion, and according to th
