Good day, colleagues.
Heat(in Moscow +35C) - it's time to finish one of England's desert armored vehicles - AEC Armored Car Mk.I
A car based on the AEC Matador truck, with a Valentine turret.
They were mainly used during battles in Africa and Egypt.
It's hard to say anything about the model itself. Just Miniart. Brittle plastic, joining of some parts gives a separate "pleasure"
The only thing that really pleased me was the wheels. So pleased that I gave up buying epoxy.
The assembly itself is out of the box, a couple of nuances have been improved, the main of which is the Headlight on the tower, "forgotten" by the Miniart.
Guys - Miniart, Masterbox Some stuff - Miniart and a little "scratch"
Coloring - AKAN.
Oil & Pigments - Jimenez & Co.
Thank you all for your attention, enjoy your viewing.

Hi Сергей Никитин,

An interesting vehicle, I imagine it included an interior, although I suspect that it would not look much after assembly ...
I love wheels, very real.
Cheers and TC

Yes, the model has a full interior. But ... I was a little too lazy to show it normally and fully open the model.

A Western Desert British Armoured Car, what's not to like?!  Lovely job and super paint finish.  I have an IBG Marmon-Herrington Mk.II to kick-start again, this has given me a bit of inspiration to do it, I mainly do aircraft.

 

:goodjob:
