Bren Carriers with Vickers MMG

Another upgrade completed, four of my old Airfix Carriers have been converted to the "proper" MMG version mounting the Vickers MMG. The crew is very much a mixture of whatever was to hand and the Vickers MMGs were from the Matchbox LRDG set and the old Almark British infantry weapons set.
Three are marked up for the MG battalion of the 43rd Wessex Division (8th Middlesex) and the fourth is for the Motor Battalion of the Guards Armoured Division (1st Grenadier Guards)

Great use of different figures for the crew. I had fun spotting them. I must upgrade my old carriers one day.

These I definitely like. As SoY says, so say I. I'm inspired.

Nice. I was thinking of doing some of these as well. The Canadians dropped some off in Luzon when they realized there was no one in Malaya to received them.

Might well do this myself, I always felt the Airfix 25 pdrs crew were best used elsewhere!
