Completed after 11 months: Pakistani Frontier Corps Type-69II build

Yeah like the title states, a long ass journey with this build. I have a full time job and work out of a tool box so that 11 months was a few hours a week on and off

Takom kit, Voyager PE, Aber Barrel, Metal Tracks and a ton of scratch building to convert it to the Pakistani version.

Great work for a heavy worned and dusted look.

Thanks! These frontier core vehicles are very old (transferred from Pakistani army stocks) and poorly maintained by tribal militias - allot of dust, rubble, grease, old camo and painted over insignias in my references photos.

Nice! How did you do the flag?

Used green stuff epoxy putty. Trick is to use a little less blue than yellow so it stays a tiny bit flexible. then applied custom decals on either side and touched it up with paint. Getting the decals around the folds of the fabric nearly killed me

Very nicely done!

Very interesting subject and a fantastically well worn and bashed up vehicle.

Great finish and outstanding weathering. That is one bashed up tank. The tracks are excellent.

I love the hubcap top of the fender stowage box, like someone is in the middle of checking the bearing. The mg shield looks great !

Yes! good eye! So the plan was to have a coloured tool box nearby to further demonstrate that, but I didn’t get it done for the competition in time. :expressionless: also the MG shield is completely scratch. Extrapolated the design from photos and cut the styrene pieces. A fun challenge.

Thanks so much!
