AIRFIX/JB MODELS ALVIS SARACEN 1/72.
This is a an older model that was given the over haul treatment.I thought having it come through dark lighting and dry ice to dramatic music might be a bit over the top so I settled on a previous base that I have used.
It is a JB models kit that is now being released under the Airfix flag.I am so glad that these kits are still being produced.Very simple kits with a good level of detail on them.
I believe that you can build three variants Mk I/II/III, and decals for all three.
The stowage did not come with the kit and I think I got them from SGTS Mess.The Ariel's are a little chunky so I swapped them for florist wire but still look a little on the fat side as well but it's better than nothing.
The Bren gun is not the greatest example in the world and better one could be found.
I have not done the best Bronze green on his Saracen but that is a bit of a "Holy grail".
A good dry brushing was next and then some Tamyia weathering powder.
This time I went a bit mad with the powder to give it a dusty look because of the road.
