Progress report,
the victims at 09:30 PDT 24-08-2007:


as of 15:30 PDT 24-08-2007:


The chain gun assembly is just placed on the mount, the innards for the gun are below it in the hull.

Also I realized that my original post should have said 09:30 PDT.

Cheers, Jon

Looks good so far - dare I say it looks a little like the turret fitted to some BTR-80s:

Thanks guys.

One minor item I forgot to note, the sponsorship decals are from a 1/24th Revell Ferrari F1 car.

Cheers, Jon

Pimp my APC!!!  Not what I was expecting at all, great stuff Jon!
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.
