BTR-70 with SA-9 - part 2


The dodgy BTR build is complete.  Paintwork has been confined to overall green (Humbrol Grass Green spray if it's of any interest) to tie in with the 'toy soldier' look I am pursuing.  The result is actually quite pleasing and it will be a useful addition to my Warpact forces.

Here it is with my shocking Shilka keeping Forbodian airspace clear of imperialist overflights.

Splendid stuff - I fear that missile gap may be growing.

Any more games on the horizon?

As it happens, NATO air forces have recently received some reinforcement.
A small LCW game is planned for next wednesday.

Oh wow! I think you have really surpassed yourself here, Mr. Gow! I do like the grass green, very toy tankish.

That's always assuming the Forbodian crew have put the missiles in the right way round....

A significantly less awful experience than certain other Kitech products!

It's all going downhill fast. Too late to worry!
