The Tenth Crusade... American Volunteer 7/19/2020

After the unprovoked attack on the Vatican, Germany unveils a top secret urban warfare machine. S.K.A. Bulle. This heavy combat suit affords protection to the wearer and it's built in panzershreck and MG34, although vintage in design, can bring down the thunder on the opposition.

This is a resin kit from the Front 46 division of Modern Armies in Miniatures (MAiM) in 1:35 scale. After unboxing, I realized the machine gun was really warped. I had a brass piece from RB Models in my stash, so I clipped off the offending appendage and replaced it. IMG_1511.JPGIMG_1512.JPG
The kit assembles with little flash and few seam lines to deal with.

The panzershreck and backpack are not attached yet to allow painting. Loads of fun and not too expensive, I'm liking this build very much. Thanks for coming by!

Panzershreck for those mobile IEDs! The zipper (high rate MG) for clearing streets! I really like it!

Thanks guys, I think it will be fun! The model came from BNA Modelworld, many to choose from.

I hated losing the MG42, but I did not have the appropriate barrel in my inventory. Thanks for coming by, more to come.

Believe it or not, Trumpeter's Iveco Puma kits (as well as their Centauros) have really well done MG3 using multi-part molds. Since I am not using the MG3 from my Iveco Puma, you can have it if you want to go back. However, that brass barrel is still nicer!

Thanks for the offer, Saul, but I will roll with this for now. I haven't decided if this will be support for the carabinieri or the Swiss Guards or part of the regrouping in Poland. I'm open to suggestion.

I am mulling over using a German (Revell) boxer ambulance (red crosses being a variation which looks similar to the Crusade crosses) side by side with the Polish (IBG) Rosomak with MG turret.

21st Infantry Division for the ambulance (which is yours?):

Thanks guys! I'll be back on it this weekend (I hope). Saul, that's a sweet unit design. Does anyone make it in 1/35 scale decal?

I am printing my own decals at first. Only black and red will be printed to be laid over a white shield. What do you think?
