About Robert Burik (Burik)
FROM: NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES

We recently moved to New Jersey from Oregon. Being from Pittsburgh, we are very happy to be back on the east coast, although I will miss the Northwest - it is quite beautiful.

Looks great! Maybe your next build for this battle will be the CSM's M88? Dan

Dan, that's been bantered about here by some of the guys, but I don't think there is enough photographic evidence out there for someone to do it right. The M88 is a mean looking track. And that scene at Objective Curly would be neat to make as a dio. Bob

Great job! Love the detail work!

How did you find the kit anyway? Did the parts come together well? Am thinking of getting this kit so any feedback would be great.

It is easy to find here in the US. Most hobby shops have it, even. Wheels need replaced with AM ones for sure. Detail is soft but there. Eduard does a nicer job with it, and provides the logos for the front and for the mudflaps. Pro Art does some nice detail sets too. If you leave the door open or windows down I would suggest getting the Pro Art interior set. Bob

Awesome! Nice job on the figures! Maybe flatten the tires alittle to give the truck some weight. What do you think? My hats off to you for a job well done!

Yes, I agree on the tires. I should have done that. I think it is too late for this one. The mountings are a bit fragile. Forewarning for others. Do this before mounting them. Actually they are a little flat but not enough. I should have done just a little more. Of course you do not want to take too much off. Bob

This looks brilliant. Looked at one of these a while back but passed on it. Might try to find one again now Des
