  1. The M561 Gama Goat was seven years in development until production of the vehicle began in 1968. Its unique name was derived from the creator of its articulated joint, Roger Gamaunt, and its mountain goat-like climbing ability. It was unlike most other military off-road vehicles in that power could go to all 6 wheels of the vehicle, and its aforementioned articulated joint allowed 80˚ pitch and 60˚ roll ranges of the carrier module at the rear. Its excellent rough-terrain mobility was tempered somewhat by problems with tricky handling and maintenance, as well as it being rather noi
  2. I got this kit on a raffle in a scale model show a few years ago, and after a quick inspection, I put it in a box and forget about it. The mold is only 64 years old! the quality is ugly by modern standards. Although the level of details is decent, you will find huge fitting issues, ejector marks everywhere so I recommend studying very well the parts before assembly if you are up to the challenge.

  8. Hi Fellas: Just a quick post to show my latest work, a 1/35 M24 Chaffee from Italeri. This kit was built between two weeks, I added some soldering lines on the turret using plastic melted by using Tamiya thin glue, Silver dots from Sticko for the headlights, and wire for the antenna and that its, everything else is straight from the box. The kit was painted using the Modulation basic set for olive drab from Ammo of Mig Jimenez, and the markings I choose are for the Korean War.
  9. Thank you! The color its a mix of Tamiya Red Flat with Yellow Lemon in a mix of 1:3 , the result is a opaque yellow, but when you apply a Gloss Varnish, the color change to a wet yellow color. Hope this helps!
