Syrian BMP Dalek for use with my TW:2K forces
« on: February 12, 2019, 10:13:25 PM »
Bit of an oddball this one....BMP-1 turret mounted on a trailer, cause.....why not. Meant for my Modern Rebels, but as that is a topic we won't discuss, it will also be used with my TW:2K forces.











Next up: painting it :)

Excellent idea.

Is that the 73mm LPG turret?

With the 2A28 Grom gun, yes.

Love it. In this case it looks like art is imitating life.

You can tow it into town on market day to help with haggling for your fruit and veg  lol

Maybe ask them if they are willing to cast up a bunch of turrets seprately? They should be great for conversions.

They do a set as a loadbed weapon for their technicals.

Ah, I had no idea....but I don't do Moderns in 28mm so I don't know a lot about what is available and what not. But that would give yopu a good head start. Just a pair of wheels, some square tubing and some plasticcard and Bob, or Achmed, is your uncle :)

That's an unusual model, very interesting! ...what a world we live in.
a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice.
