M1025 "GROM" in Afghanistan Tamiya 1/35

It will be the next-eighth vehicle of the GROM unit in my collection. This time it will be sentimental because my friend was driving this vehicle. I cannot publish all photos, so I will only post one review.

Work progress:

Proper name of the vehicle “ŻUKU”, and why? Artur Sebastian Żukowski (born September 25, 1972, died June 5, 2004 in Baghdad) - ensign of the Polish Army.

He performed professional military service in the Military Unit 2305 “Grom”, and after its completion and transfer to the reserve, he became an employee of Blackwater USA. On June 5, 2004, on the third day of his work in Blackwater, he died along with Lieutenant Krzysztof Kaśkos (KAŚKA) !during the attack on the convoy they were guarding. An organization affiliated with al-Qaeda pleaded guilty to the attack.
He was posthumously promoted to the rank of senior ensign.

The armor on the back consists of three layers - three types of plates. First in place

In my spare time, I made a few pieces of equipment. There is also a kevlar blanket to lay on the floor. The next parts of the armor are ready.

Thats some great detailing!

E






nd of the year, but the model is not yet. On the turret, I removed the pieces that the crew had cut. I “jump” on the model elements a bit, but this is for variety at work. Bad photos, because the weather outside … a disaster

I am already tired of this model. Some details, dirt, details and it will be the end.
