Hi all, I have never attempted an armour build before, have mainly concentrated on helicopters and sci-fi up to now so please go easy on me. I am quite a way into this build but will post the progress to now, will be quite picture heavy I imagine. Will hopefully post over a few days to show the stages. So here is the kit I am starting with: I am fascinated by the Vietnam war I guess it's because there was so much film footage. This kit doesn't have the IR search light so I ordered the Def.models turret detail kit as I think it looks way cooler with the light.
This is my completed Academy M151A1 as would have been seen in Vietnam. Added the front passenger M60, a couple om M16s and storage from Value Gear. Went easy on the weathering this time... For it's size it's a lovely little kit and the only warning to anyone doing one is be very careful when attaching the wheels. The axels are very weak Cheers Sean
