1/35 AFV Club M-24 Chaffe
This one dates back to 2018 when the AFV Club offering was still pretty new. The kit is supposed to give you the option of an articulating suspension but bad engineering makes this very hard to achieve; I did not invest the time needed to make it happen. The hull parts are very thin and the molding is superb, and they also give you a metal barrel for the main gun.
That being said, it was a fiddly little thing to assemble, no one major problem but a whole lot of little ones that extended build time accordingly. It still builds up to a decent model.
The figure is a Tamiya leftover from somewhere, and the base is celluclay over styrofoam. Yes, that's a real driveway rock to the left of the tank. Grass is from Woodland Scenics, and the trees are what I think are called seafoam...some sort of fern that grows in far northern climates I'm told. In spite of the fiddly tank this was an entertaining project that was my first attempt at contoured groundwork which is probably why I had so much fun with it.
