Not so sure about the links above...never-the-less, here is a link to the real website: http://www.tiger-model.com/index.asp?hl=en

Two new kits:




I would like to take credit for the second one having recently placed an order for a 1/35 resin AMX 10 RC from Azimut... :-X  Another case of taking one for the team...

 Glad to see they're doing some 1/72 scale armor, too.

That AMX-10RCR has a good probability of being added to my stash.  Though it may end up as part of a turret swap with something else before all is said and done.

Yep:



I am tempted to get the AMX-30Bs Brennus kit and re arm it with the GIAT 120mm gun from the Leclerc MBT thus creating a upgraded export version/lower cost alternative perhaps.

Hmmm...no there's an idea...

I actually like the idea of one done up in either Police Blue or even British Army in Northern Ireland?

Yes, but only after they do the Mk IV and A7V ones...which will have ERA and Trophy APS... ;)

Even uglier?   The standard AMX-10 looks fine, all that extra armour seems rather pointless IMHO.   It is a heavy armour car, not wheeled MBT...

When I was in the RAAC my unit was flagged as the trial unit for Project Mulgara, a light, mine protected, reconnaissance vehicle.  All sorts of vehicles were considered, from modified Holden Rodeos (Isuzu utility), modified Humvee, to light strike vehicles with composite armour, but what we actually wanted and hoped for was something like the VBL, or Mowag Eagle.

This kit has be reminiscing and imagining Aussie VBLs in Iraq and Afghanistan.
