Hello:

I`m looking for reference pictures for the Dominican AMX-13 tanks, the ones with the "pueblo" and Constitucion" signs painted on.

Hope someone can give me some advise in order to make that interesting subject.

Best regards.

Don't know if it's the very same tank (I guess digital camo wasn't in vogue in 1965 )...

The last one seems to have got the pueblo marking just to look like on the period picture.

Thanks-what an interesting article.
I’m going to look into this and the Takom kits.
