Plastic Soldier Company - M9 Half-track Platoon

Next up in the new additions department for my late war British is this platoon of PSC M9 Halftracks



I decided to be exceptionally clever here and stowed them in such a way so I could tell them apart in the heat of battle and knew who was in what ride.

The Platoon Commander's vehicle:



This M9 is plain, with no side stowage - which tells me it's the Platoon Commander's track.  It also has a .30 cal on the pulpit - and the driver's visor is closed.

1st Section



1st Section's M9 is armed with a Bren gun and the driver's visor is open.  It has 1 pack on each side, so that tell's me it's 1st Section's track.

2nd Section




2nd Section's M9 is armed with a .50 cal and the driver's visor is open. It also has rear stowage.  The gunner is a PSC figure that comes with the models - but I have changed his rear webbing to look a bit more British.  The M9 has 2 packs on each side, so that tell's me it's 2nd Section's track.

3rd Section



3rd Section's M9 is also armed with a .50 cal and the driver's visor is closed.  It has 3 packs (or at least bits of stowage) on each side, so that tell's me it's 3rd Section's track.

So that's my platoon of M9's.  They may not look totally lived in, but they work on the tabletop so that's good enough for me.  One day, when I can find the appropriate figures - I do chaps for the back or each.

Thanks

Richard
