my good friends, & comrades!
sergey has some sad, & some exciting news. the sad news is that the zil (gmc) has been sold. the old girl has served mother Russia well, & will be sadley missed.
the good news is that sergey now has a brdm-2! yes, he has been promoted to an armoured vehicle driver! hurra!
I should take delivery early this week, am soooo excited! went to look at her yesterday, & have a drive. she's a beauty! has come direct from the polish army, just been repainted, & has all of the radio equiptment still in it, that works! huge aerial that you attaché to her side! all bits, & bob's work, belly wheels, etc. she's a turreted model, so my pkm should slide in as the auxiliary gun, & I recon the .50 cal will slot in as the main gun. if it does, will just need to dumy up a more correct outer barrel to slip over the .50's. this will mean to machine guns spewing fourth plastic death!
at the moment the vehicle isn't road registerd, so westwood is the only place she will be appearing at the moment. I will of course stsrt the process of registration as soon as possible after I get her. so for those who are doing the gi weekender next weekend, this will hopefully be her first outing.
me thinks, we are all going to have some fun, with this new beauty! if I could work out how to get pictures of my phone, I would post them up.
see you all soon chums,
sergey (aka james, former owner of the gmc truck)
