Russian tank riders

Took a while working out how I could use the Hat tank riders, there are two main problems, firstly the figures at at the large end of 1/72 and they have a lot of equipment/packs, this makes them difficult to position in some vehicles, especially the smaller ones such as Jeeps. In the end I managed to find 6 suitable figures that would fit in my SU76's and decided to base the rest in modules to fit into my Gaz trucks

The finished modules, typical that the one mis-aligned barrel would be at the front

All mounted up and ready for action.

This is a brilliant idea. I was thinking of using Hat tank riders to fill my trucks as well. This way one could free up the trucks for other types of scenarios.

Excellent work, and a clever use of these figures! Would love to see a close-up of the SU76s with crews in as I have been thinking of using these figures for crews as well.
