15mm Painted IrishSerb's US Marine AAV-7A1's.

It's been a cluster feck of a day, the area manager who wasn't scheduled to come down today came down  and we spent the last 4 hours doing verbal and numerical test exams for his new job he's applying for within the company and my head is fecked along with his and he went and I have a fecking headache and I'm fecking stressed and not even applying for the fecking job.....

These are a lovely pair of 15mm vehicles and come from IrishSerb's Miniatures, all resin, 4 parts, no imperfections at all, a real joy and I know I need to paint the guns (MK19 grenade launcher and .50-cal browning machine gun), possibly do something with the tracks, maybe some markings but I wargame them so I'm not too worried and will try to do some of this at the weekend I hope....







Postie needs his stash escorted this weekend at Skirmish 2012 Wargaming and Modelling show at Sidcup, it's near and won't take long as it's quite a small show, have a good weekend if you can people.....

  5. So you had to study for his job application? That would give me a headache.
    Tanks look good!

  6. Great looking stuff... Always liked the Amtracks!

    Sorry about the headache... Honestly... If someone abuses his co-workers for preparing him for a job interview he is clearly not suitable for more responcibility! Have a great weekend anyway!
