Anyway a light bulb moment took hold of me and I thought what the hell let's build it! I mean the AMX is curing and the male tank is drying after a wash, sure I could have got on with the figures for those two but where's the fun in that? So a couple of enjoyable hours last night and most of this afternoon saw me finish both off!
OK the kit is a bit chunky in places and there's some missing details but that's not the point. Besides these are 1/76th scale for fucks sake, who goes to model shows with a magnifying glass? I did add a few embellishments mostly on the 1 tonne and made up some spent rounds & ammo boxes for the gun but mostly enjoyed myself.
I can probably finish this off in a week or two so it's a nice little aside project which will fill the gaps during the other two builds. It's just a pity that no 1/35th light gun is available in plastic or resin at the moment. I'm not holding my breath that one ever gets made so this will have to do.
