Sagging spirits

A review of my Little Cold Wars toys before a recent game highlighted the need for a Sagger team in camo uniforms.    Prone figures seemed to be the best option, so this pair of rather dishevelled Airfix WW2 Russians were dug out to serve as the basis of a suitable bodge.  The LMG gunner had his DP cut away and the No.2 had both grenade and PPSH surgically removed.  The gunner then received a control box in the shape of a bit of balsa with a length of wire stuck into it.  The 'Sagger' is a cut down aircraft missile.
At the time of writing this team had it's combat debut earlier in the week - more on that coming soon.

A Sagger with a swagger? I'm sure the Comrades will like that.

I think it's crazy, but I like it
Those 1/32 scale Airfix soldiers were such a part of my childhood :)
