Nice subject!!


The camouflage looks difficult to attach....but turns the vehicle really interesting ;)

  • Thanks Polux, I thought the same thing myself when I saw the instructions in regards to the camo scheme for this vehicle.

    [*]I have seen several photos of these vehicles on different forum's, most of them had the camo scheme, which were mainly done in a three colour scheme, but there were a few that showed just a one colour scheme.

    [*]Personally I like the three colour camo scheme. ;) ;)

Got a good start on the Csaba, seeing that there isn't a great deal of parts to this model or photo etch, I'm hoping that it builds fairly easily, with no major problems.


So far, so good, the hull halves fit really well, and there isn't a great deal to add to the hull itself, so I decided to fit the running gear to the underside of the hull, this also proved to be an easy issue free fit ;)


Anyway this is where it's at, hope you like it :smiling3:

That looks like a good kit. Nice crisp detail. Look at all those lovely rivets jut begging for some rust streaks....


Dont think I have ever seen one of these before and I too will be watching the camo go down. (no pressure) :smiling3:

Coming along really well Tommy, it's not taking you very long to build this one!


Those transverse leaf springs are unusual, I wonder what the ride was like.

Thanks Ian, it is different and unusual, also a break from the usual German kits, and the camo is giving me a headache, but it's got to be done ;)


Hi Polux nice to have you along, glad you like it :smiling3:


Thanks Monica, the detailing is really nice on this one ;)


Cheers Patrick, glad you like it, I was surprised how quickly it's gone together, no major issues with it, other than getting the radio aerial frame to glue to the hull mounts, very nice detail on the leaf spring's, in fact I'm really impressed with this kit :smiling3:  As for the ride in the real thing, I'd say they were in for a bumpy ride :D

Came across some pics on the internet of different colour schemes, that they obviously used, although the tri-colour camo scheme looks the best, and that seemed to be the most popular scheme used by the Hungarians.
