    A view into the troop compartment. Note to self: next time, build suspension before attaching side skirts......

    The troop doors on the BMP-1 actually contained FUEL TANKS (go figure), and are both bulbous and prominent.The doors on this particular vehicle are layers of card laminated to 3/32 basswood, that has been carved to shape.

    Sounds silly - but actually makes sense - diesel fuel is relatively non-volatile so
    it can be used as a "liquid" armour. There have been a number of AFVs designed so the fuel tanks supplement the main armour.

    Oh crap Yuri looks like he got into the vodka and red flag supplies and started joy riding with the hatches unbuttoned again.
