Due to other tasks(family and work) I haven´t been very
active with my hobbies lately but now I am back.
To several of my games that I play I have had a need
for a armoured car with light armament.Especially my
russian force that I use for SoTR has been in a need
for a recon-vehicle with light armament.
During the WW2 the russians didn´t manufactured or
design that many armoured cars and that was probbably
a strategic decision because they went for big tanks
with strong guns in a great quantity.
I wanted the armoured car to look rough eventhough
it was a ligh vehicle and to use plates (schürzen) and
also a lot o rivets I think I have made my point.
The model that I converted was a very simple toy
and the first thing was to shape it up.(see last picture)
The first thing I did was to lower the chassi and glue
i together. I have also made a antenna for long distance
communication using a simple technique.
The rivets are made of plastic tooth-pics and the plates
are plastic sheets that are leftovers from packages.
Next step will be to put om some paint. :)
