The Miniart´s model is accurate, complex and beautiful. A year ago Miniart surprised everybody placing in the stores the three versions of this vehicle in 1/35 scale, it was very good news as it was the first time that a plastic kit of the AECs was available. The first one was the Mk.I model which showed the “state of the art” engineering of the Ukraine firm that provided a kit so full of details and subtle parts that the model became a modellers trending topic at the forums for many days.


When I received my kit I expected another good quality Miniart kit but I didn’t expect it to have so many pieces, checking the sprues to examine them I noticed that many of them were very delicate and with very subtle details, and none flashing, errors or broken parts. The kit included some very useful photoetched parts and a decal sheet with markings for three different vehicles deployed at Libya, Syria and Egypt.

Assembling and first colours

With a kit with so many parts the first thing you should do is studying the instructions carefully; you may want to alter the building process suggested according to your painting plan.


You can go straight forward if not painting the interior, but you may build many subgroups of parts and start the painting before going along. That was definitely my case; I made many groups, engine, floor with seat and steering wheel, etc. and started painting them with the walls of the car aside in order to reach the many details with the brush comfortably.
