Hi, the last six months has been busy. One cosmetic Amx13 restoration for a private collection, and I am currently working on an Amx 13 VCI (amx troop carrier) built in mid sixties and rebuild in 1980 I found it languishing in an armour bone-yard in Belgium.

I purchased a few AMX's in varying conditions abroad and had them all shipped over six months ago after at least 3 years negotiation - getting armour out of France is a lengthy business... I'm glad to say after an intensive period I have nearly completed the first full resto of an AMX13 from 1958, that had been modified as a 'demonstrator' for possibly the Argenti
