AMX-13 bodging

You may remember my £0.99 AMX-13 DCA a few months back.  Well, I found another one.  Same price.  As I don't really need another DCA (the AA variant) I settled on another plan - which would involve removing the turret.  This meant I had to dismantle the thing - as can be seen in the photos.
This process has certainly increased my appreciation of these Solido models - they are rather cleverly thought-out models.
But what of the AMX-13's future?  More on that coming soon....

A very interesting 'bodge'. Looking forward to seeing the new turret.

Bridgelayer or SS.11 launcher?

Le camion de NAAFI?

A scrapyard full of useable parts as a target for geurillas?

Ps you have no idea what effect all your bodging and cannibalizing has had on my spare time and stockpile of toys.
