Bren Carrier

And another incomplete project. Been studying the ubiquitous little Universal Carrier recently. Used mainly for transporting men and equipment, around 113,00 of these little tracked vehicles were produced from 1934 onwards, making this the most numerous AFV in history. Also known as the Bren carrier, it would mount a Bren gun in the commander's position to the left of the driver, and often another Bren on a pintle mount in the back.

When I was young I used to think it was rubbish, and was drawn to the German heavy tanks like everyone else. But the little carrier has some charm about it, and I don't care if it doesn't mount an 88mm gun!
