Hunting the Holy GRAIL?

Some time ago I built a few SA-7 for my 54mm Cold War WARPACT forces.  One was issued to a Militia battalion so I still had one on stock for the Category 3 motor rifle battalion currently on the modelling table.  This battalion is mostly made up of WW2 Russian figures - a mix of Airfix and some Chinese made figures I picked up in Belgium last year.  It was one of the latter I selected for special duties as the AA missile operator.
 This comrade looks remarkably cheerful to say he's just had his PPSH cut away (ooh, nasty!)
 Next his hand was drilled to take a length of florists wire...
 ...while the SA-7 was also drilled. thus justifying this post's rather lame title!
The wire was bent to 'clamp' missile tube to hand, and then a liberal blob of PVA was applied.  No doubt we'll soon see this chap again when he's properly dressed.

If this is the pun you use for Grail, God help us us when you get to Faggot.
