Never new about the Soviet PAK36/45mm guns, very interesting read. Those renders look great as always!  :)
You are bathing in misery and hope, waiting for someone to come and pull the plug.

The 45mm at gun was widely used until the end of the war. In fact, one could say it was the Russian version of a Bazooka, because it equipped infantry bataillons with their own anti tank firepower. The 76mm Zis 3 has already been shown. AFAIK there was no 85mm at gun (only an AA gun) and there are no plans for the really late war 100mm gun, which was pretty rare.

Nice models!  According to this website http://www.militaryfactory.com/armor/detail.asp?armor_id=390 the ks-18 (the replacement for the m1939) was a dual purpose gun. It also says "the m1944 retained full anti-tank capabilities as well as being an anti-aircraft weapon. For this role, the crew could switch to an anti-tank projectile."
Theres also this section from the book Kursk 1943: The Northern Front https://books.google.com/books?id=i34OBAAAQBAJ&pg=PA30&lpg=PA30&dq=was+the+m1939+used+as+an+anti+tank+gun&source=bl&ots=T0X7RHOBQR&sig=dsAw1Ik2uJSYEeJDZ3hx-Zmsbr0&hl=en&sa=X&ei=v1IwVcW-OOzIsATYlYDwDg&ved=0CFcQ6AEwCQ#v=onepage&q=was%20the%20m1939%20used%20as%20an%20anti%20tank%20gun&f=false
Stating "each tank corps was provided with a battalion of 12 towed 85mm M1939 anti-aircraft guns to be used as expedient anti-tank guns."
So it sounds like it was possible to use the 85's as AT guns, but I'm not sure how common it was.  It would still be pretty cool to have as it would a threat to Germanys heavy tanks.
