20mm Universal Carriers

 More Christmas builds completed.

Four Plastic Soldier Company universal carriers, (l-r) an MG carrier, PIAT carrier, 2" mortar carrier and Bren carrier.  Figures are Raventhorpe, except the dismounted Vickers team, which is from an Italeri/Esci set.

The carrier section.

Bren carrier.

2" Mortar carrier, complete with huge crewmen.

PIAT carrier.

The MG carrier with Vickers MMG dismount.

Another set of giant crewmen.

Nice that the gunner is modelling in a leather jerkin.

These are painted using my "normal" British armour colours, WW2 Russian uniform washed in Agraz Earthshade and dry brushed Iraqi sand.  Decals are Skytrex.

Thanks for looking.


  1. Great stuff Andy. Those last two photos really show how enormous those crew figures are!
    Cheers, Richard P

    1. Thanks Richard. Yes, sadly, they are whoppers, the 2" mortar man looks like a gorilla in a suit! I've got the artillery observer vehicle finished as well, and the spotter in that looks chunky as well - more on that later.

      Cheers, Andy
