Modern US Army: Avenger HMMWV + Cargo Carrier

Latest addition to my growing modern US Army force: The Avenger HMMWV variant. The Avenger carries a small one-man-operated turret, sporting a .50cal HMG and two boxes of four FIM-92 "Stinger" Surface-To-Air missiles. Although basicly intended to fight enemy helos or low altitude jets, it is a common sight deployed in a ground support role.
Avengers have strong thermal vision, night vision gear, a laser range finder and their HMG - a perfect array of tools for overwatching intersections or valleys at night.
The model shown consists out of an OOB built HMMWV from Revell and the resin turret from Shaun (S&S). I made the turret removable, allowing myself to add the canvas top to the back - this way I get the Cargo Carrier variant.
