Tiger Model 1/35 AMX-10RCR Separ

Hello to all my dear readers. Finally, I have managed to do what I used to do when I was in the UK. Progress after Progress and reveal after reveal. And here is another one for 2017.

This is the second offering of the kind from TML (Tiger Model Limited). The kit is fantastic for its price. This kit also happened to be my second Tiger Model kit and after this, I am hooked on Tiger Model.

Some information regarding the kit - The fit of the parts is very nice and assembly is straightforward. There's only a small amount of gaps to fill. I love that there are plenty of detail around the whole vehicle, especially on the turret, which does look very 'busy'. I even decided to put more stuffs on it. Hahaha. That turret is a very sexy one. The 6 tires are done in a soft black vinyl(or rubber?? I am not sure) which have a detailed heavy tread pattern and include raised markings of the tire company which makes them just lovely.

I didn't do anything special, just the NATO Three Tone. The colours used are Tamiya Nato Green XF-67, Nato Brown XF-68 and Nato Black XF-69. These are my GO TO colours for every and ALL nato three town vehicles. I love those colours. 

As I found on some sources, these babies were in Afghan and some sources also indicated Mali so I decided to go 'Desert' Dusty on it. I used a variety of AK and AMMO wash for the dusted effects on the nooks and crannies. Of cos, a bombardment of sand and dust pigment was necessary. 

I am more or less happy with the state of the vehicle but I am so pissed off on my eyes missing out on the glaring mould lines on the stowage. As I only managed to find them during photo-shoot, I couldn't be bothered to fix them anymore. Laziness strikes and it hits hard. LOL. Regardless, I am happy I put them on. It adds some visual interests.

All in all, this was a enjoyable build.

I am, however, not happy about forgetting to remove some of the heavy application of the dust wash around some of the details. I totally forgot I put on too much and I thought everything was fine until I took the photos. Only then I realised, some of the dust washes are really really messy. :(. Oh well.... what's done is done.
