Bofors 40mm gun #1 complete

Tamiya PT-15 Japan MTB Posted on Feb 19, 2012 11:29:35

After some months I have finally completed #1 Bofors 40mm gun. One more to go. So far I am quite satisfied with the first one smiley

There was one thing regarding the ammo, where I didn’t agree with the instructions from TAMIYA. The cartridge housing was instructed to be black, while the grenade was to be gold/brass. My research on Bofors 40mm ammo didn’t reveal any ammo in that color scheme. Instead I found the opposite: Brass cartridge housing and black grenade, so I decided that’s how I wanted my ammo to look.

A few pictures.

He still needs a strap to hold the glasses and his body may need to be extended. Furthermore he might need a life jacket.
