Here is my contribution to Polux's SIG.

It's an Academy 1/35 eight man armoured squad carrier. Used for special tasks, it could be dropped from a Hercules transport behind enemy lines....Exciting or what?!

Might be a bit boring 'cos it will be built straight out of the box. To be honest, I don't see the point in buying add-ons and P.E that usually cost far more than the kit, when perfectly acceptable models can - and are - made by just opening the box lid....and thus saving wonga for another kit! Just my take on extras, but each to their own, eh?

Or, like Colin's fine example, make your own bits an' bobs.

Anyway, here is the box and sprues......

Cheers,

Ron

Welcome on board Ron!

Nice kit, the Ian's one looks very good so far.

Maybe you will do the same paint like box, I suppose...? ;)

Thanks to you and all for join in this SIG.

Good luck friend!

Good to be along at last....I was beginning to worry it had gone astray.

Anyway, I'm going to cut it in half, add a long length of body in between and make me a stretched limo. Fit smoked glass windows and paint it all pink with some big yellow daisies on the side. Scratch build a roof rack and fix a load of surfboards on top, dude!

Cheers,

Ron
