|With tractors. Limbers yet to be built. That will probably|
require collecting more road wheels...
Towards the end of 2014, Brian gave me the dark green vehicle below.
|Comparison of sizes between the AA vehicle and the|
Army Men tank.
|Very soon I gave it the addition to the sides of the vehicle to disguise the|
flush casting of the hull side and road wheels.
It was pretty battered, had no tracks, and the whole side skirt and road wheel assembly was one flush piece. I began at once by cutting and pasting a length of card plastic along the bottom edge of the skirt to suggest that the road wheels were behind. I also added a cardboard shield. As the shield was a bit flimsy and flollopy, I recently added side pieces better to protect the crew and to make the shield firmer.
|How the finished tracks look on the AA vehicle.|
Hasn't turned out too badly, methinks. I may add a rust coloured wash over it all later.
|That gun shield does need some tidying up...|
At the moment, there is but one crew man visible. This is from a NATO figure wearing a beret. I decided that Raesharn tank men wear red berets (again, just to add a bit of colour). I have yet to find another figure I am willing to sacrifice to place on the other side of the gun. I'd like him to sport a beret as well.. These figures I cut with wire cutters at roughly the upper half or third of the torso, then jam them in beside the twin AA cannon.
