AMX-13 DCA

This rather down at heel toy was purchased on eBay for £0.99 plus postage.  It was missing some trivia like radar dish and both gun barrels but that didn't deter me.  Soon with the aid of pliers, superglue and violence the AMX had a spiffy new pair of brass gun barrels.  A splash of green paint later and the job was as complete as it's ever likely to get.

Ooooooow, I like that! Never heard of one of them before (...>And so the Googling begins)!

Looking forward to seeing how you finish it off.

Whatever do you mean? Aside from painting the brass bits green it is finished!

It's nice to see toys receive a new lease on life in this way. A fine and useful vehicle, I'll be bound!

A rather useful hedge mower. Nice!

A Solido tank! Didn't know about this one.

It has yet to shoot at anything, but it's time will come!

A garlic flavoured Gepard perhaps?

Just one of several AMX variants Solido produced.
