M10 Achilles Mk.IIc Tank Destroyer, AFV Club Kit #35039 in 1/35
Built for the Commonwealth Thunder! campaign on Armorama
June 1, 2013 - December 31, 2013
Not a bad kit but to tell the truth I think I like the Academy kits of the M10 better. Main problem is the tracks don't fit, they are about 3 links short.
There were about 5 choices of kit markings most in olive drab, one in winter white wash, and the one I chose in Khaki and Black. The unit is listed as the 21st Anti-Tank Regiment Royal Artillery, Guards Armoured Division, Tank Destroyer Battalion Netherlands 1944.
The Camo Scheme of Black on Khaki seems to be an outgrowth of the wavy patterns found on Universal Carriers at the time and the Micky Mouse Camo mostly used on Soft Skins.
