So, this is going to be a build covering my old Striker, C/S 34B, from when I was its Commander for about 7 years.
I was lucky enough to come into possession of the Accurate Armour kit from Andreas @AKirchhoff so a big thank you to him.
The build will not be a quick one, I can see it being a minimum of 8 months, but more likely 12. I intend to take my time with it so I can do it justice and get it as close to mine as possible.
I will be also be using a donor AFV Club Scimitar for a few parts to replace or instead of the AA bits with the resin kit. There will be some minor scratch building to bring it up to spec, and also some P.E, probably the Tow ropes & Fire Ext’s from Accurate Armour. And yes there will be a cam net @BootsDMS lol.
I am still deciding as to the paint job, either the normal NATO Black and Green as a UK wagon or in its IFOR livery from Bosnia, or an outside possibility of a desert scheme for when we went to Egypt on Ex Bright Star.
Thanks to the new forum, there will be now be plenty of WIP pics as it progresses as although the AA resin kit is good, the version I will be doing will require some cutting/sanding and filling. this will be my first resin kit, so any advice and tips will be greatly welcomed. I will post some images later, sadly some will be a bit grainy as they are pics of pics that are on an old laptop, the others will be of the kits as they are now. More to follow. Happy modelling !!
