When Takom announced it was to release a series of 1/35 M3 Grant/Lee kits, armour modellers were delighted, and as shown by Joe Turner in AMW’s August 2018 issue (see p.46-53), they build into impressive replicas.
The feature provides a step-by step guide, highlighting construction and fit issues along the way, and provides quick and simple remedies as vehicle T-24243, assigned to the 3rd Royal Tank Regiment during its deployment to North Africa in 1942, is assembled. Guidance is also given for those wishing to attempt colour modulation techniques for the first time, and how a change in the underlying tones can affect the overall finish.
There are also features on the re-released Airfix 1/72 Lightning F.6, AMK’s splendid 1/72 Kfir C.7, Hasegawa’s 1/24 Subaru Legacy RS and much more; the magazine is available from www.airfixmodelworld.com.
