British Nuffield Assault Tank A.T.1 in 1/72

Recommended Posts

The old heavy "prime minister" (Churchill) was outdated and urgently needed a replacement. Sawed by the Americans, the T-14 did not cause much joy among the British, as it looked like an ordinary tank. Then the task was given to design an assault tank with the most thick armor. The development was commissioned by Nuffield.

On March 13 (Thursday), 1943, the first drawings version of the tank, called the AT-1 (Assault Tank-1), was issued. Weight 45 tons, torsion bar suspension, weapons in a rotating turret, either a 75 mm gun or a 95 mm howitzer. In general, the project was normal and quite calm.

This is the OKB Grigorov's A.T.1 in 72 scale. The model building was a joy, as it builds in real rare gem in any collection. Painting scheme is from this picture:
