Hi there,

A few pics of my 1st 1/48 kit
The kit is the very good Gaso.Line T-62 ( only the rear hull panel actually requires some rework to correct it ) with scratch detailing to make an upgraded version as seen in the various Caucasus conflicts

Omsh tracks and running gears from the kit will be replaced by home made Rmsh

So far only the hull is done and one side of the slat armor

Great start. Bar armour scares me!

Slat armor was somehow my biggest fear when I started that project !

Hi Yvan!

Congratulations on your fine a good work on this one. That T-62 with the slat armour looks quite cool but to make new tracks... that´s an improvement, IMHO!

Keep on the good work!

Regards!
Alvaro

PS As a modern armour fan,it is a pity that (main) modern subjects are only available in resin. Let´s hope Tamiya would release any of them sooner or latter!

Tks Alvaro !

Yes, for sure that would be nice to have modern AFV in plastic, Tamiya for ex. already scaled down few WWII kits to 1/48, maybe one day we will see also the modern ones
The latest T-55 Enigma would be a nice start !
