I have been waiting for this kit to come out, so when I finally found it in the store, I could not (again) resist temptation to start it right away.
As can be seen from the pictures, this is one of the most futuristic bad-ass looking vehicles that I can think of. The kit is very good, Panda did a good job to make this build enjoyable experience, at least most of the time. There are few quirks – periscopes on the driver’s and commander’s hatch, photoetch covers of the rocket launchers on the sides of the turret and their attachment to the turret, but these can be handled. Once finished I was impressed. The vehicle is huge, larger larger than the average MBT these days.
Unfortunately due to the already mentioned card failure, I lost the pictures from the construction phase, so here is where I start.
Now I am thinking how to paint it, so far the vehicle was seen only in the Russian green as far as I can say, so it may need bit of imagination to make something more interesting out of this…
