As part of the recruitment drive for my 1/32 scale early 20th Century 'Russian' (or Tratvian) Army I needed some more machine guns. As I already had a few spare Charbens MGs (see this earlier post) it seemed churlish to consider anything else. I did, however, decide to make them more 'Maxim-like' by adding wheels. A rummage in the spares box yielded some 1/72 PAK-40 wheels which I thought looked vaguely suitable. Having now painted the ensemble I am rather pleased with the end result.
