Jason

Thank you for the great review.

To me, looks like quite a solid Kit but as you said, it needs after market......
however, for my skill level I rather take solid simple kit than "everything in the box"kit with tons of errors.......

Regards

Jay

Does the kit scale out to 1/35 or is over sized like there M-ATV. I would like to convert it to a Canadian vehicle and need to know if the AFV Club Weapons station will fit.

Regards,

Rod


Rod, I don't have the measurements for the real thing but I would be happy to measure the kit for you.

I really wish they had included the windows without pistol ports.


Yeah, I agree. I guess you could use the kit ones as templates and cut some out of clear plastic but I really would have preferred not to have to do that.

I did not measure mine, but as far as I have read it scales out pretty good.

I tried AK's dirty window wash for the first time on this, but didn't like the results. I probably would have been better off not experimenting until after I took the pictures
