GIAT AMX-30D Recovery Vehicle Display Model
French Army, France

Limited Edition

1:48 Scale   Length   Width
GIAT AMX-30D Recovery Vehicle   7.75"   2.5"

The armoured recovery vehicle, known as the AMX-30D, was designed to recuperate or help maintain vehicles in the field. The recovery vehicle includes a winch powered by the vehicle's engine, with the ability to pull a maximum of 35 metric tons (39 short tons) of weight. The vehicle also has a 80-meter (87 yd) heavy towing cable, while an auxiliary winch has another 120-meter (130 yd) towing cable, able to tow up to 20 metric tons (22 short tons) when working over the front of the AMX-30D. In the latter case the vehicle must be supported by removable props, which are carried on the vehicle, and the bulldozer blade must be lowered on the ground. The crane can lift up the 3.29 metric tons (3.63 short tons) power pack and the 10 metric tons (11 short tons) turret. Instead of a turret, the AMX-30D is fitted with a superstructure, and weighs 36 metric tons (40 short tons), although with the extra power pack it can weigh up to 40 metric tons (44 short tons). The vehicle can protect itself with a 7.62-millimeter (0.300 in) machine gun. The driver's visibility is aided by the inclusion of three M-223 episcopes. The AMX-30D has a maximum on-road velocity of 60 kilometers per hour (37 mph) and a maximum road range of 500 kilometers (310 mi).

GIAT AMX-30D Recovery Vehicle

Designed as a main battle tank for the French Army the AMX-30 prototype was completed in 1961 and the type entered full-scale production in 1966.

Gaso.Line Master Fighter

Master Fighter display model vehicles feature:

  • Molded resin construction with no assembly required.
  • Metal barrels, photo-etched metal grills and surface details.
  • Rotating turret and accurate hull.
  • Painted, fitted, non-moving tracks and detailed non-rotating wheels.
  • Pad printed markings and placards that won't fade or peel like decals.
  • Clear acrylic display case to protect model.

Why Resin?
It's very expensive to produce die-casting molds, and manufacturers must sell a large number of models from each mold in order to recoup development costs. Some subjects are so obscure that it's difficult to sell large quantities of them. Resin-casting is a much simpler and less expensive process, and manufacturers can use it to make limited runs of models that can't be cost effectively manufactured in diecast metal. With resin-cast models, collectors can add fascinating and unusual subjects to their collections without the time and difficulty of assembling and painting a model kit.
