Post subject:  TAKOM 1/35 G6 Rhino.

WIP - I am at present busy making the TAKOM 1/35 G6 Rhino kit.
The Alclad II (ALC-408) Armoured Glass tint arrived today so now I can carry on and start putting the body together once I have tinted and installed the armoure glass windows.
I am going to be painting my model in the SADF Dark Earth Brown and not the SANDF Camo.
Photos to show work up to date as well as a photo found on the net which shows the size of the 1/35 G6 RHINO COMPARED TO A 1/35 CHINESE 152mm TYPE 83 HOWITZER .

Hey Vulcan,

Is that the Takom 1/35 G6 Rhino in the last picture next to the Chinese 152mm Type 83 Howitzer?

Hi Stratobat,

Apparently that is the BAXMOD resin G6 next to the Chinese Type 83 Howitzer?
The G6 body of the TAKOM kit is approx 26cm long (still busy building it), so is still a long body. I have no idea how long the BAXMOD G6 body is.
When finished I will put it next to the AFV Club Centurion Mk5/1 or one of the other tanks I have, just to give an idea of size.

Regards
Vulcan

Should make for an impressive display next to the Centurion :smt023

Are you going to add the machine gun and mount to the top of the turret?

Hi Stratobat,
What size mg was mounted on top of the turret. Info regards this is not easy to obtain over here in the UK, am asking as at present I do not have any spare mg's or mountings in my spares box so will need to see if I can either get one donated or see if there is one available to purchase.
Regards
Vulcan
