Ian, this kit sounded something of a challenge to build. Maybe that wasn't helped by having to fit in with a reasonable time frame for a build review as I can imagine this being the kind of model you could spend months over building. With all that complexity, the underside looks very nice. Great idea with the screws in the tyres, and love that photo with all the clamps.

Yes, could've really gone to town on this one, but after the problems of the chassis and body fitting I decided to just get on with it. I actually quite enjoyed painting it - photo feature to follow...

I really hate that, when all four wheels don't touch the ground! Trumpeter seems to have changed some things needlessly, and I wonder why.

so, is it possible to build an ordinary BRDM from NBC kit?
