8th Army Anti-Tank Guns

Airfix straight from the box 6 pdr guns painted for desert theatre.  The second carrier went into the spares box.  Thought about replacing the crews but decided to go with the original Airfix, nostalgia?


So that's two tanks to go to the end.

  1. This is a very, very nicely done unit for the desert. Seeing as how the 6 lber could penetrate any of Rommel's tanks or other AFVs it's a good purchase and a better paint job.

    1. Many thanks for the comment. I remember doing one of these an awful long time ago, like all the Airfix stuff I've done recently, echoes of an earlier time.

  2. Go with nostalgia. This was a very nice kit.

  3. Excellent painting has disguised the imperfections of the original crew, and a bit of nostalgia is a good thing with this kit.

    1. Thanks Peter, strange how many people like these old 'uns despite the more accurate and better made versions around these days. Maybe there's a place for the old moulds yet!
