Austin-Putilov


Recommended Posts

Tonight's project, an Austin-Putilov armoured car. The chassis and hull are assembled, at the moment the turrets are clipped together to test how well they fit.

I got some workbench time in this evening. The Austin-Putilov armoured car is ready to paint and weather.

So much armour plating all around those really vulnerable wheels 😄

 

 

Weren't tires like that solid back then?  Wheels themselves are vulnerable but I wonder how much damage they can take for pm small arms fire before they don't work any more.

The Austins had pneumatic tyres for road use, but could also be fitted with solid rubber tyres for off-road use.
