Takom FV432 Converted To FV432/30
For those who don’t know, the FV432/30 was an FV432 converted by adding the turret from the Fox. A lot of people think that it was a Scimitar turret, but that is in fact wrong. The base kit is the Takom FV432 Mk2/1, with the Accurate Armour FV432/30 conversion set. The worst aspect of the Takom kit is the running gear. It doesn’t go together very well and was out of alignment, even when using the jig that is provided. As for the tracks, they look good, but all seem to have commented on the bad fit. So I’ve bought a Masterclub replacement set. As you can see, this is another in the Berlin Bde scheme. That is because that was where the /30 was first deployed. Later they were redeployed to BAOR. As far as I know, they are all out of service now.
