Morning All

Next on the desk is the Airfix Warrior

What I didn't want to do is your typical Afghan version but go with one as used in Estonia at present.

Apart from the kit I am using the etch from Airfix plus scratched items.

I will not be adding the bar armour as this over scaled and not in use on the vehicles in Estonia.

Hello Bricksy,

although you just got started I already love this one. When visiting the UK last year I bought this kit as a souvenir. (Naturally) I haven't started yet. I bought some resin figures but couldn't convince myself to the etched set. Seeing your lovely build I guess I'll have to invest some more!

Really looking forward to seeing this one finished!

Regards,

Mark

Thanks Mark - its a great little kit but is missing some of the finesse that the etch can replicate.

One area I wont be adding is the slat armour as it is way to over scale which is a shame - thankfully its not fitted on the ones in Estonia
