Czech ARRV VT-72B

Painting
The decoration is the one of the vehicle on the box cover, of which numerous pictures are available on the CD-ROM. It is overall green. Another option is to represent the three tone camo currently adopted by the Czech army. The decals (for either a Czech or a Slovak vehicle) which are very bright require a gloss varnish coat prior to their application. Then a matt varnish coat is sprayed before the weathering. Weathering is done through several washes and a steel colour dry-brushing on specific parts on of which is the blade
Conclusion
The pros
A very nice mold, the real vehicle pics and technical drawings added on the instructions CD-ROM, the Friul tracks, an original model.

The cons
The price,195.00 USD including Tax and the instructions

As a conclusion, this quite complex model is not recommended for beginners but gives some originality to any collection of armoured vehicles.
