As a couple of you correctly guessed, my AMX is on it's way to becoming a bridgelayer. Or to use the correct title: AMX-13 PDP (Poseur De Pont) Modèle 51. Poseur De Pont. You have to love that. name.
This being me, the model will bear only a passing resemblance to the real deal - but we will end up with a AMX hull with a bridge section on the roof. The bridge section in question comes from our old friend the Matchbox AVRE kit - but suitable widened and strengthened to support die-cast 1/48ish scale tanks. I'm not after a scale replica here - rather a working wargames bridgelayer.
To support it I knocked up a box section of plastic card.
Sleek eh? I am consoled by the fact that the real thing looks like a lash-up too!
