If it’s one thing I normally don’t associate my modelling interests with it’s 1/35 armour. I’m just not that big into armour that I want to spend the time and money on large-scale tank kits. Normally, I just get the COBI (Polish Lego) tanks and build them if I want a big tank. They’re fun and easy. I’m also not super-attached to or enthralled by any armoured vehicles. Well, okay, there are a couple, but they’re darned few.
One, however, that I definitely have a thing for is the South African G6 Rhino SP Gun. I love things with six wheels, I love oddballs, and what is odder than the G6 in the world of armour? Not much. I’ve wanted a kit of the G6 for years, but nobody has made one. Well, not until recently. Then Takom (a brand I have no experience with) brought out its massive 1/35 Rhino. I wanted it. Badly. Me, the “not-a-tank-super-casual-Matchbox-armour builder” guy. I saw one, once, in a store, and gagged on the price. I thought it over and decided to take the leap, and of course, it was gone by then.
I did get a second chance, in the summer of 2019, and took it. I have to say, it’s not like anything I’ve experienced before and I think it’s going to be an interesting journey. If you’re curious about what this one is all about, you can check it out at the link below!
Wish me luck!
