Moiterei's WW2 Ramblings (Update February 20th p.17)
« on: August 07, 2016, 08:36:59 AM »
I've finally come back to my beloved Fallschirmjäger. Ever since tumbling across a picture of an abandoned "sPzB 41 auf Gepanzerter MG-Träger Bren 731(e)" in Libya I knew I had to get me one.











I'm well aware there was probably only the one documented in Libya in 1942 but you know how it is with such things...
In the end who does really know what actually was around unofficially at lower unit levels back then?

nice  ;)

Dans les situations critiques, quand on parle avec un calibre bien en pogne, personne ne conteste plus. Y'a des statistiques là-dessus.

That's one gorgeous vehicle  ;D really well done. I can see some expert surgery to Warlord plastic FJ to get them into it. The theme of captured Bren carriers is a great one for conversions - with some mounting a Pak36 or just a rack of panzerfausts
