This is a model of the AFV Club 1/35 US Bofors with a 40mm automatic gun. I built it right out of the box, not adding any after-market parts.
I painted it with Testors Model masters Olive Drab, Metalizer for the barrel, and Floquil Weathered Black for the tires. It was then weathered using Mig Pigments Dust and Dirt.
The kit comes with six full clips, ammo box, extra barrel, plus four types of canisters.
A warning: dry fit the pieces together before you glue. In some spots the instructions leave a little to be desired – like the trigger for the gun. They give you some parts for the British version, so you’ll have to modify it to fit.
