Always thought this was one of the best looking AT guns ever made …..
Another model I’ve had waiting to be finished for too long. A little more delicate than the simpler resin tanks this needs carefule clean up and assembly to ensure everythings straight and level.
There was a problem with the the hydraulic recoil buffers being being a little too short to line up with the top and bottom mountings. I’m not sure if this was something I did or a feature or it being a pre-release moulding (I’ve had it a while – the shame!). Anyway I added some rod and it was a pretty easy fix – just something to watch for.
Anyway after a little extra detailing, I added wheel jack handles, botton trunnion plates, shield stays amd a few linkages to the gun sight, it’s ready for it’s final weathering ……..
