Having enjoyed putting together the AAT , I thought I'd do another , but this time make it a variant . I call it the AAT-SO ( Armoured Assault Tank Special Ordnance ), a heavy weapons version of the Trade Republic Tank . I moved the gunner's hatch from the turret to the forward hull and added weapons from the spares box . I still need to add a few details such as grab handles and rails , as well as a few more bits and bobs . Like the earlier AAT , I took inspiration for the colour scheme from WW2 armour and my only plans going into it was to give it a real "beat up" look . I've developed a real soft spot for this kit and might even do a couple more !

Default Beat up? Not half....

I read somewhere that it doesn't matter how well constructed a kit may be, a poor paint job can let the whole thing down. The "beat up" look of this tank is spot-on, and it looks just fantastic. Never a fan of the ever-expanding Star Wars universe, but I can certainly appreciate what a great variant this one is. Well done and thanks for letting us see it,

Kindest regards

Patrick

I've started work on another variant Tank to add to my Trade Federation army .( The "Special Ordnance" version is still a w.i.p , but I thought it as easy to work on two as it is on one !) This time , I'm going for a "Shield Generator" or "AAT-SG" . Like on the previous tank , I've moved the pilot's hatch to the forward fuselage and in common with the first Tank , I've been inspired by WW2 German "Splinter" camo for the paint scheme . I also added some grab handles from thin wire and a few "sensor pods" . This version will be less battle damaged as I see this tank to be less in the thick of the action and therefore more "pristine" .


Here I've added a little weathering .


I've begun to put together the "shield generator" from a plastic salad spoon , part of the original tank gun and bits from the spares box .

And here's it is mocked up before I began to add paint .
