M-247 DIVAD Sgt. Yuk - part 2

Here is the finished effort in all it's ghastly glory.  I think 'Sgt. Yuk' is a much more fitting name for my version!

In case you missed it here is the build: link
Sgt. Yuk struggling to see off some even older technology.  It kept shooting at the glass....

Well done, nice model!

Perhaps the radar detected the glass last contained vodka?

How did the hens react to this intruder?

Martin Rapier said...

Lovely job Tim. I seem to recall we played a 6mm game with a Sergeant York in it a few years back? It didn't work very well then either.


Paul Foster said...

Its a winner Tim!

On my list now!

Tim Gow said...

Phil
Thanks. Now go and get your eyes tested....

Tim Gow said...

Arthur
Could be. But I must add that no alcohol was involved in the making of this model. Planning it, on the other hand.....

The chicks went to a new home in November....

Tim Gow said...

Martin Rapier
I think that goes to prove how authentic my games are. Unlike my models.....

Tim Gow said...

Paul Foster
It should feature near the top of the 'crap but compelling' list!

Archduke Piccolo said...

Looking ... erm ... good?! But here's a thing. Have you ever noticed that the unit(s) that you find hardest to drum up any fondness for are the ones that perform prodigies on the battlefield? I wonder what they are trying to prove...? :-)

Don M said...

Well the glass was clearly in
league with that subversive
commie aircraft! So it counts
as a hit....)

Very nice Tim- funny how the ZSU23-4 worked and that didn't....

Cheers,

Pete.

Stephen Beat said...

I was thinking the same thing as Pete - why didn't this work? Although I am one of those people that thinks - in design - if something looks right then it'll work right.

In any case, this is a wonderful job Tim. It loks terrific.

I know what you mean. I think its a variation of the rule that new lay painted toys will die first.

Tim Gow said...

Don M
I can see you've submitted this sort of report before....

Tim Gow said...

Pete
I think it would have taken a brave Senator to advocate buying Russian!

Tim Gow said...

Stephen Beat
As far as I can see it didn't work because virtually every element of it was wrong! Let's have a flash new system with a radar linked to a pair of proven guns? Fine. But now let's adapt the radar from something we already have in stock. OK-ish. But now let's fatally compromise it by bolting it to an ancient tank hull. Hmm. In fairness, though, the M48 hull was the only bit that worked. Just a bit too slowly.....

Pete. said...

What about the Gepard- did the Cold War US ever buy (West) German?

Cheers,

Pete.

Tim Gow said...

Pete
Gepard - or at least the turret - was one of the contenders but was pushed aside by this piece of cr*p. Madness.

Tim
Having seen the beast up close and in person, I can say that every adjective that could be applied understates the model.
Well done.
Cheers

Tim Gow said...

Peter Douglas
Very kind sir - assuming you mean positive adjectives?

Peter Douglas said...

TIm
Yes some of them are positive.
Cheers

Tim Gow said...

Peter Douglas
Actually most of the negatives are understatements....
