PlaStix Posted August 13, 2021 Share Posted August 13, 2021 Hi all. As planned, this will be my build for the GB: I bought this kit when it first came out in 2016 and it's one I've been looking for an excuse to build for quite a while now. I always thought this was an interesting looking vehicle. I'm hoping that, now I have finished my two builds for the Less Than A Tenner Group Build, I will have the time this weekend to make a start on this one. I still need to wash the sprues in warm soapy water, but, after that, I'll get it underway. I won't probably get as much time on this as I'd like until after the LTAT GB has finished - because I'm the host of that one - but we'll see According to Wikipedia: The AMX-13 is a French light tank produced from 1952 to 1987. It served with the French Army, as the Char 13t-75 Modèle 51, and was exported to more than 26 other nations. Named after its initial weight of 13 tonnes, and featuring a tough and reliable chassis, it was fitted with an oscillating turret built by GIAT Industries (now Nexter) with revolver type magazines, which were also used on the Austrian SK-105 Kürassier. Including prototypes and export versions, there are over a hundred variants including self-propelled guns, anti-aircraft systems, APCs, and ATGM versions. The Wikipedia page for the AMX-13 can be found: HERE Kind regards, Stix 10 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
