The armoured train is a resin and white metal kit from Brigade Games in the US. It is designed for the Russian Civil War (RCW) but I have added extra turrets to give it a Dustified look. The turrets and additional weapons can be removed so that I can use it in my RCW games.
The kit is designed to run on some strange model train gauge that I could not find in Australia. I was lucky enough to find some very cheap O scale model trains with tracks and I have added the wheels to the undercarriage of the trains. This involved a lot of cutting and the addition of armoured skirts on the under side of all carriages. It is not exact for RCW but I am happy with the results and it is good enough for the gaming table.
Armoured locomotive. Lots of work involved in cutting out lots of resin underneath to fit the O scale wheels.
Scratch built gun carriage with the lovely 100mm gun and crew from a SSU gun tractor. The gun tractor is one of my favorite kits and I have 4 painted with the AT gun and 2 awaiting paint with the 220mm mortar.
Gun turret carriage with the addition of quad 12.7mm AA guns from a SSU walker. The gun in the turret is a 45mm automatic in Dust Warfare (like the KV walker). The AA guns can be removed and a plug is placed in the hole to cover it up (returns to a RCW train).
Infantry carriage with a 45mm gun and automatic mortars from a KV walker. The mortars are removable as well. The carriage carries two squads of SSU troops and is also equipped with 4 12.7mm MGs.
Last infantry carriage and another gun turret carriage. The last carriage is equipped with a rounded KV turret with 100mm gun.
Below are some WIP progress shots.
