Hi guys. Got my camera back tonight again so I was able to take some pics of the finsihed model. Trumpeter´s "B" kit OOB except for two PE tie-down straps for the pioneer tools. Nice kit for a modern vehicle .. but the tracks annoyed me .. the paint lifts a little like Italeri´s. No other problems noted. Comments andcritic are welcome!






Just spotted the middle light is not painted!!

Nice, (as usual I might add)!

This would make a dandy Model On Display Feature.

Hi Chad. Yes, two at each side. They´re not visible in these images as the lighting is overhead, and they´re tucked in under the wide track. But they are there!

Steve I´ll PM you later tonight!

Frank, nice mud effects. Good clean build. One nit-pick. The antennas look too big. They should be thinner. In the last two pics they look really thick. Very minor stuff. Again, looks great. "Q"

i love the mud effect...well, this is the second trumpeter Strv ..
the first one correct me if im wrong, they had like jerry cans attach to both sides..i don know wats the purpose though...but it still looks fantastic coz seen my mentor did it once..
overall its a unique tank coz it doesn't really have a moveable turret...

I second that, Franck your mud effect is simply awesome. Congrats for doing it OOTB, it becomes less and less the way people build (like me in fact !)
Danial, concerning the jerrycans they acted as ... jerrycans but also as a kind of add-on armor to defeat rpg or HEAT rounds detonating them before they hit the main armor.

IIRC, the jerrycans were not added on the first version.
