The gunners on each side don't seem to have floors.  Damn, even with a flood of available conscripts, you'd think training costs would make them take better care of their people assets.

I was hoping it was a kit, but it looks like he has just done those three so far (one of them sold on Ebay for $4,000 US!!) A little too rich for my blood,  :-X
