Shocking Shilka!

The latest toy to enter the service of the Forbodian Peoples' Army is this bodged up ZSU-23/4 Shilka.
The hull started off as a dodgy plastic M-48 to which I added a layer of balsa.
The turret was carved from insulation foam.  The gun barrels are 1/72 aircraft undercart legs.  The same rummage in the spares box yielded the radar dish - the base of a stand for a 1/144 scale aircraft model.
Shilka with a T-55 - it looks about the right relative size.

Dodgy Shilka with dodgy Sgt. Yuk. A ghastly duo!
