BAM: Universal Carriers are GO!


So yeah, I think I’m supposed to post more?

Well, currently I’m putting together Universal Carriers. As in, a few of them. Like 4. Yes, I’m going to field them in an Armoured Platoon. Yes, I’m crazy.

M10c Conversion, In Progress V

Now that the physical work has been done, it’s to paint my M10c!

At the end of a week of short on-and-off painting sessions, the hull can be assembled, though I still need to pick out head/ tail lights, tools etc. And I’ve slapped the tracks on, but that’s a minor episode by itself.

M10c Conversion, In Progress I

7Yeah. That big gun. 🙂 (Hmm odd.. There’s no bolt heads on the side armour…)
