The kit gives the option of building the model in the British, Belgium or Spanish versions and remembering my time in the Spain Marine Corps, I chose this version. The decals supplied with the kit for the Spanish version are not enough, so I had to get the decals of the Marine Corps from FC Modeltips.


Editor note: The Spanish Marine Corps has its origin in the “Tercios Viejos”, infantry units destined to be embarked in ships, that was made temporary for specific campaigns or combats, thus the name “Tercio de Armada”.

The AFV Club kit #AF35S-02 is several years old, but still good and follows the lines of the brand. To improve its details for this note, I added the Eduard #35457 PE set and the “workable”tracks from AFV Club #AF35290. The set offers individual track links which click, nevertheless, they had to be treated carefully since the joints are very fragile.

I also added the antennas from the Leopard Workshop detail set: LW021B which can be folded if you want to.
