After struggling with my UM Shermans in the GB, I needed to build something fast, without much worrying about its accuracy or the need to add detail.....I knocked this up last night: Note the subtle & high-tech tools I've been using. It's an old (green box) ICM re-pop of the venerable Omega-K 1/72 BTR-152.....This one was intended to be built as the BTR-152S command variant, but the parts for that need a lot of work to look presentable (the exact opposite of what I'm after here) and command vehicles aren't much use as anything other than set-dressing on the wargames table. Hence I've built it as an open topped gun-truck, it will have not one, but two LMGs, mounted on the side pintles and any & all stowage discarded as unsuitable for my Shermans is likely to be at least contemplated here. This is the first of four of these, the next will be another open topped gun-truck, but that one will be getting a DShK HMG for the front mount. I also have two kits of the K version with a closed top, these will be even quicker builds than the first pair, they will receive a single LMG each. All of these are being built for my 'Fragmentistan' Rebel Forces, a band of some thirty Soviet deserters, Jihadists, tribal malcontents and smugglers who've been raising hell somewhere in the Soviet-Asian hinterands (in an alternative mid-late 70s) - Customised CoC Ruleset). Once these are done I'll start on the platoon of Soviets who've been sent to deal with them.
