Unboxing Pig Iron Science Fiction Vehicles

In a previous post I showed pictures of Pig Iron infantry that I recently painted.  Soon after I learned about Pig Iron, they announced that they were going out of business.  So my planned slow purchase of Pig Iron infantry and vehicles turned into a leap.  Yesterday a box arrived with infantry I had ordered as well as four vehicles.  The quality of the casting is excellent.  There are no pits, chips, or bubbles.  The vehicles look feasible, unlike other science fiction vehicles.  You customize the basic hull by applying hatches, stowage, and turrets.

I purchased on tank turret as well as a bunch of bags of smaller machine-gun turrets, hatches, and stowage.  You can’t seem them in this picture.  I will post pictures soon of assembled vehicles.  I also bought a few extra bits beyond what I need for these four vehicles so that I can scratch build some other vehicles in the near future.
