72nd scale AMX-13

Recommended Posts

AFAIK there's only one 1/72 kit of the AMX-13. Unfortunately Heller states that it portraits the last variant (from the '80s) with 105mm gun.

My question is whether this kit is buildable as the 75mm-gunned early variant that was used by the French in anger (in Suez and then in Algierian campaign).

What parts should be modified/replaced and generally - is it worth bothering with as the kit itself looks crude?

Perhaps it will be better to wait for some new tool, but life is so short...

don't hold you breath for a new one in kit form, there is a diecast one from amercom/altaya done as an israeli one.

the heller one is quite crude by todays standards, the tracks are the worst bit imho!

I purchased one off of evilbay and it should arrive any day.  From the box art it looks like the 75mm gun but will know more when I have it in hand.
