The Strv-103 – Sweden’s Unique Take on AFV Design


Always one of my favourite tank designs, the Swedish Strv-103C is a sure bet to be an early addition to my collection.

The old Aurora kit for the original version of this tank came out when I was a kid, and I recall it being the first model kit I ever bought on my own.

I don’t yet have the 1/35th scale kit (from Trumpeter), but I do have the appropriate metal barrel (sourced from RB Model) and the photo etch set (from Eduard).
