The Romanian version of the BMP-1 was the MLI-84. These were longer than the Russian versions, and traded one roof hatch for a machine gun mount. I'm using S-Model kits with some conversion work. I won't be stretching them as it's too much work to do well; the hull would be no issue but adding a mm here and there between the road wheels would be a royal pain in the backside!

I bought this on a Ebay a few months back - I've always wanted one of these as I had an Epic one years ago and loved the model. Obviously the colours are pretty unpleasant, so it'll be getting a respray (well a strip and respray).

I don't think I've ever posted about this before - although I've had it partly assembled for years. It's a Landraider with the Chapterhouse parts on it. The parts stylistically look great, but the casting was a bit off - hence the amount of filing before these fitted well. I used several IG Lascannons in the sponsons and added extra plating to cover up the swivel mechanism, which was too apparent. Tracks are from Blood and Skulls, and ultimately this will be joining my Sons of Horus army.

Well sort of, the new 'Nid Tyrannocyte fills the role of a drop pod (actually more like the Dreadclaw in that it can move ). Either way, I really need to get a move on and finish these pods, that my friend Linton made for me just before I left Canada - the right one was designed to fit into a crater, but will now need some rework to base it for these new rules.
