Trumpeter 1/72 AS-90 SPG


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I don't normally build AFVs but gave this one a go for the Ground Attack GB here on the forum. The build thread is here but to recap:

 

Kit: Trumpeter 07221 AS-90 SPG

Scale: 1/72

Build: Out of box

Paints: Halfords plastic primer, Tamiya & Revell acrylics, Klear, Flory Models Wash, Oils, W&N Matt Varnish

Extras: Value Gear Details stowage bits donated by good friend Pat.

 

It's a super little kit packed with detail and I think the stowage really helps bring it to life. The only downside are the individual link tracks made out of some kind of soft plastic - there's not enough of them to make up two full tracks so there are gaps hidden by the side skirts. But had lots of fun and great to try out new genres that aren't planes or rotors.

Thanks for looking and happy modelling.

All the best,

Dermot

Maybe you should build more, that's really nice.
