2S1 Gvozdika (FOW Cold War)

The next update for my Team Yankee Soviet force is a battery of S21 Gvozdika self propelled howitzers. The Gvozdika 'Carnation' is a 122mm self propelled howitzer used by the Soviet Union from the 1970's to today.

The miniatures are 1/100th scale (15mm) kits by Zvezda that I picked up on the Warstore for $7.99 each. These kits went together much better than the Shilka's as the Gvozdika's have far fewer pieces, and less fragile ones.

Neither of the Zvezda kits have open hatches for the commanders, so I had to cut them open and make some out of plasticard.

Can't wait to get my hands on the Battlefront T-72's in a few weeks!
