This is Trumpeter's VSEL AS 90.

It's not a bad kit, will I build another? Yes.

Anyhoo on with the piccies.







Thanx for looking.

Cheers Daz

i'm not really an armour builder (much!) but i like what you've done with the mudding up on the lower chassis, how did you do that? i ask because i have both the airfix chieftan and centurian in my stash, and if i could make them look half as good as yours i'd be happy!
and what scale is that kit, i'm guessing 1/48 but you might have a really massive bin

Hi Phil.

The kit is 1/72 and the muddy apparearance was added by drybrushing a suitable mud colour in the areas which get really dirty.

HTH

ehm,
I really thought it was 1/35! And it looked very good in that scale, outstanding!

1/72!!!!
i'd never have guessed that was what it was, the pic of the rear end especially looks like a bigger scale. as i said i do have some armour kits to play with, but i'm back on the wingy thingys at the moment, what with telford now looming!

Nice one Darren, how did you over come the problem with the tracks?
