Talking 1/35 IDF Achzarit APC/IFV Project!

I have a lot of scratch work to do to the upper armored body. (AIAC)-Armoured Infantry Assault Carrier


OK this is a kit that I have had for a year and now I think I should use it for this project.


Here's my starting work.




Not much for now but I'm still working on it as well as my Mk.IV's upper hull.

Now the rear of this APC is nothing like the older version.




Here's a photo of the older type. [Notice the stowage basket]

I think I made the rear sections to long, so I must cut them down a bit.

Here's the fixed rear sections.




I was lucky that I was able to use a lot of the old parts. With a little reshaping and some time I got it to work.




More coming soon.....

Thanks Spaceman, here's some work from 2 days ago. I wanted to start on the RCWS so here's some of mat work. Now some of the parts I have build are not the right size and I will fix that.




Here's some line drawing to help in the RCWS build.




See here this Middle part need's to be cut down and reshaped. Once I get this thing build the cammander LIC cupola will be next. (I have drawing to help in that build as well.

Shalom.

That model is marvelous! It would make a fantastic kit if it was available in styrene.

Exceptionally well done!

Cheers from Little Rock
