Little Armory AT4 anti-tank weapon
After featuring several assault rifles and machine guns, it’s time for something slightly different. The AT4 is a shoulder-launched anti-armour weapon; basically it’s a bazooka. This kit comes molded in olive drab plastic, so it wouldn’t look that bad even without painting. But I painted it anyways using Tamiya Olive Drab spray can. It comes with a shell that’s molded in silver-ish plastic. You’re also supplied with a sheet of stickers but they are really thick and would look horrible, so I used my own set of waterslide decals.
Detachable option parts included a carrying sling (didn’t bother to attach it), front and rear muzzles, a grip, shoulder rest, and some targeting sights. I glued those parts to the launcher to prevent them from falling off.
In terms of length, the AT4 is slightly shorter than the M240 machineguns.
And now a closer look at the whole thing:
Some action poses:
Final word: The AT4 provides some diversity to the Little Armory line, but frankly I feel there’s little to admire in this kit. It has excellent amount of details, but once you get past that, it’s basically just a tube. There’s not many poses you can get with it either. On the GM Ground Type, the AT4 doesn’t look out of place at all. The RG hands definitely helped with posing.
However, handling the AT4 on Mr. Skeleton was be a bit tricky, even with the Little Armory Tactical Gloves. At least I managed to replicate the pose on the boxart:
