28mm Chechen Improvised Anti-Tank Vehicle

This is my answer to the massive amount of Russian armour my gaming oppo is producing for our Chechen War set up. VW Samba minibus crewed by fighter with RPG18 as well as RPG7s stowed out a side window for easy access, what can go wrong?
 Picked the Cararama diecast up for a very reasonable £8.49. Now they are overscale at 1/43 but I think we can get away with it.
 Unboxed, perfectly suitable to put straight on the table but I like to have a little tinker with them
 Screws out broken up into its constituent parts
 Added a driver, a cut up Redstar figure
 The canvas sunroof is moulded on and has to go
 cut out and the folded sunroof made from plastic strip and wine bottle foil.
 Interior painted
 I followed my usual painting system, primed the vehicle and added some wear and tear, chipping grime and streaking.
 The fighter was one of the Empress Chechens and the loose RPGs I found in my spares box, not sure from where.

28mm Chechen Command element

Just about there with my Chechens, a 4 figure command/HQ element, Red Star figures gifted by a friend, first off a 2 figure base with the blokes refering to a map of central Grozny.
