Max(im) Power

More AA support has arrived for the Comrades!  The leand-lease GMC truck is a Pegasus plastic kit, the Maxim and crewmen are Britannia metal castings.
While I've never seen a photo of such a combination, the Russians mounted Quad Maxims on hundreds of GAZ trucks in the 1930s.   I can't imagine they lasted forever...
These comrades will soon be allocated to a Tank Corps, but for the moment they are filling their time scanning the skies for the Luftwaffe.

Hi Tim,

Funny I have been considering these for my own set up - the trucks that is. How do they go together, any problems at all?

The BT7 is a lovely model and I have some of the BA6s on their way as well.

All the best,

DC

If probably goes without saying that I have quite a few quad Maxims mounted on various dodgy lorries!

A Soviet army isn't a Soviet army without various dodgy lorries! :)
