For the future I made different elements of the tracks of caterpillar

I give the shape of the caterpillar using a guide equipped with wheels


Road rollers are modified by adding bolts made of resin

I often work with the old kit to remake my modified parts, it gives a touch of youth to these kits that have despite rendered service to all! The current editing is not done by following the plan to the letter, quite the contrar

Speaking of old kit, there is always a correction to make on the bottom box that is distorted

I use glue 21 for all my work

after I put the casings

thank you for Roy's encouragement!
after the crate the most important work was to remake the turret with some modification such as the hatch ejection hatch that is converted into exercise simulator for exercises.

this opening fits on both brands of the AMX30

The turret is fully equipped

patience is one thing, the most important thing is to make some pieces and to reproduce them in resin. Following the assembly with painting, I used the Humbrol 102 is the reference that comes closest to the French army green. Then I make touches of micro paint to make the armored user and aged by weather conditions.
