I recently finished this tiny armored car by Takom. I built it and painted it as a Spanish Legion vehicle in the Spanish Sahara in the early 70s.
The kit is a good one with minor issues like some huge pouring lugs which sometimes require extra work to clean the parts. The fit is usually good however you need to be careful with the rear boxy parts.
Takom proposes the both versions of this armored car: with twin 7.5 mm MGs and the 60 mm mortar or with a single .50 cal MG and the 60 mm mortar.
To backdate the AML, I just removed the NBC decontamination bottle on the left door (a French only feature). I also modified the searchlight so it is slaved to the weapons and I added the straps for the gap ditching elements (not sand channels as often mentioned) on front of the vehicle.
It is painted in a sand color which is a mix of Tamiya Desert Yellow and Buff. I applied a white filter to give it a sunbleached look. The dust effect is done with various shades of pigments.
