    So, this little machine was making rounds on the internet a while back, and in light of recent events, I figured I might as well do a model of it!

    For those that do not know, members of the Free Syrian Army had constructed their own AFV based on the chassis of a truck, with a PKM mounted on top, and controlled through a PS3 console.

    I'm almost done with the model; might testbuild either tomorrow or saturday as I have plans for friday.

    I hate it when I've used up all space possible and there's only ONE SMALL PART LEFT ON A SINGLE PAGE.

    I think the way they integrated a Playstation to control the gun is pretty resourceful. Any 7.62 mm armor piercing round will go through it, that is, if it doesn't get you first! I'm not sure if I would want to be in that or out of that. I think I'd just prefer to not be there. Don't know how those guys could fit into it, having such big 'nads. :)
