Irish UNIFIL AML90

Postby BKirwan » Tue Apr 18, 2017 12:25 pm

Gents
I haven't been much on-line the last few months but here is a little Irish UNIFIL AML90 1;35 (Azimuth kit) which I think you might be interested in. The decals are home made. I believe Takom are bringing out a AML9-0 and a AML 60 so there is a plastic alternative to the resin Azimuth. The kit was a breeze to build so the challenge in this was how do you make white look interesting ?

Now I am going to have to get the Takom kit and do a few more,

Hope you enjoy,
Regards
Brian

Lovely work there Brian. The base definitely sets it off nicely. :o)b Good news on the Takom kits,well overdue on this vehicle so widely used by so many for so long. The only kits available have been the above in 1/35 and by Ace and Model Miniature in 1/72. I've done both the 1/72 kits with mixed results.

Cracking job, White is not easy to weather, but you did a cracking job on that aspect too

That's a fantastic looking model/dio Brian. Really nicely executed and, as Spud said, you did a great job weathering up the white.

Top marks and thanks for sharing!

Gents thanks for all of your kind words.I have to say the photos turned out well and show it off well.

The decals are home-brewed and if anyone is interested in a set it's no bother for me to print of a set for you. If you are interested just send me on your address as a PM.

With the Takom kit coming out it put this Irish subject within reach of more people than the Azimuth resin kit. The latter is very good by the way.

Regards
Brian
