Back with some more modern heavy armour from Trumpeter! And being British its a bit of a favourite. I really like the the fact that this kit has a dozer blade for clearing obstacles and road blocks. I would guess this was aimed at the Kosovo conflict an era not commonly covered by this hobby.
This kit was knocked up a while back and posted on Benno's forum, because I am trying to catch up with a few duels that I have on at the moment. Now the "plague" has left the west house hold I can try and make up some time.
|This painted using a can of Humbrol 86 light olive and watered down Vallejo flat black. The light olive is a great colour for modern British armour and trucks.|
|This is another great Trumpeter kit, it went together like a dream.|
|For spraying I would recommend doing in it in three section before final assembly, turret, chassis and upper body.|
|The blade is movable and could be modelled buried in the earth removing a road block.|
|This is certainly a monster of a tank as most modern tanks are, but with the blade its huge!|
|One of the benefits of Trumpeter kits is the fact they have moulded the gun barrel with a hole in it and in one piece.|
|The usual weathering techniques have been employed, Tamiya weathering powder and MiG pigments.|
|The only down side is the lack of opening hatches!!!! I wish they would give you the option of having them open or closed. I have a small but very nice CMSC AFV crew that would look the nuts in the beast.|
I just wish they would do a scimitar/scorpion as well, the ACE kit looks a right pain in the arse and the Airfix kit to small.
