Grant Armoured Recovery Vehicle

Grant ARV

The result of a rebuilding project of an old, battered Airfix kit - and the accidental destruction of the scratchbuilt turret (the Airfix Grant turret is totally out of shape, as is the Hasegawa one) I put sooo much work into :((.

Faced with the prospect of doing all the laminating and reshaping again, I decided to go for a recovery vehicle instead.





Stowage boxes and pioneer tools are scratchbuilt, as are the headlamp guards. I loaded the vehicle with stuff from the spares box and tried to give it a well-worn look; it's not as glossy as it looks in the pictures.

The trailer is a stock Airfix one that comes with the Halftrack.
