Anyway, my next completed model is a Revell Spahpanzer Luchs recon vehicle. This is an interesting kit to build as the suspension etc is pretty complex (I'm sure I managed to build mine backwards!) and very realistic (the rubber parts on the wheels come in 3 seperate peices) and yet none of the hatches open... So an excellent model - but none of the flexibility, no real options that you would expect in a decent kit.
Here is the box art:
I have about 5 or 6 (or even 7) more of these kits to build. Normally I try and build things 2 at once - but the undercarriage seemed so complicated, I decided just to do the one. I must admit though - that the Revell instructions are excellent - it was like a book! Very detailed strep by step.
So this one got painted in the later Bundeswehr/NATO 3 tone cam. Here it is:
So there she is. Pretty sure the Luchs died quite quickly in its first game as well. A 20mm canon vs a T-72 Super Dolly Parton isn't much of a match!
I have that set plus a Roco version. With what others are doing by having one viehicle as a battalion I can field two．ReplyDelete
