British Nuffield Assault Tank A.T.3
OKB Grigorov has provided a very unusual kit in the form of a British post war Paper Tank. The Nuffield Assault Tank A.T.3. Which was one of 9 various of a design proposed by Nuffield. As a Paper tank it was only a design and never left the drawing board.
- 142 resin parts
- one photoetch sheet
- one instruction sheet
The detail quality is great; The parts are very delicate and need careful removal from the resin bases. The instructions need a lot of experience to work with to get a great model.
Some of the parts were a little twisted but can be corrected if you’re careful.
The assembly is good but needs a little patience and time to get the running gear built correctly. Also, the resin tracks are very fragile, so this needs a lot of accuracy to get them fitting and looking right.
There were a few gaps that needed filling.
I did find the PE sheet was very thick and made it hard to remove parts from it.
I would like to have seen some small decals. The final part is painting.
This was my second one of this series of Nuffield assault tanks and it made it a lot easier knowing how the running gear and track assemble.
I enjoyed building this and recommend it to experienced modelers.
Thanks go to OKB for providing this kit to review and IPMS USA for allowing me to review it.
