Fabulous! Never seen a photo of the Plamya being carried before, although obviously it was. Seriously impressed by the detail. The Luaz is wonderful, I so want one. Super cute cute but there is a small inner voice saying

Tra la la, tra la la, la…

One banana, two banana, three banana, four
All bananas make a split, so do many more
Over hill and highway, the banana buggies go
Come along to bring you the banana splits show

The carried Plamya came from the original Soviet manual so just had to be done  ;)

As for the Luaz cute is the word. It has so many variants so more to come in the not to distant future. However here are just a few to keep you true Cold War junkies going.

Cool!

Any non- cold weather SAS in the offing? Been converting a few of my own but more always welcome.

By the by, dunno how commercial these are but would there be any chance of half figures for BAOR and the forthcoming Argentines in trenches? I know we can cut firing figures in half but I reckon a dedicated set or two would be nice.

Fabulous! Useful figures all three. Now I’ll have a pair of Blowpipes. Twice as useless as one.  :D

I shall name the first 11 members of my Argentine platoon after Velez Sarsfield by way of thanks for the immense pleasure they have given me over the past week. 6-1 on aggregate and a spot in the final is a lot of pleasure.  ;)

It is very cute, weirdly the Wikipedia article has a photograph that does not show it in its full glory.
