PM-43 120mm mortar - part 2

Following on from this earlier post, I have finally completed the mortar and it's crew.  Though clad in uniforms from WW2  - or rather the Great Patriotic War - I carried out a 'paint conversion' exercise and painted them in the camo scheme introduced in the 1970s.  As usual with toys in this scale (1/35) I have gone for a 'toy soldier' finish.  They look OK to me.

These two photos show the mortar with 3 crew figures and mounted on a 4-inch square steel base as used in my Little Cold Wars game.

Very nice again Tim- the paint conversion looks fine.

Agreed, he paintwork looks cool

Nicely done Tim.

I score the front of the shirt to make it look like a tunic.

Easy in 20mm.

Impressed with the cam mate.

Are you going to spring load the tube so that it actually fires tiny motor bombs ??? :-)

Tim Gow said...

Thanks - I like 'em.

Tim Gow said...

Thanks - I wonder how effective the mortar will be.

I'll leave that sort of thing to dangerously obsessive modellers. Do you know any?
