Hi Seb,

I don't know much about modern vehciles but you have done an excellent job here with lots of great detail to make the vehicle come alive.

Terrific stuff.

Looks real nice. I think the MILES gear makes it stand out. And no need for slat! Where did the backboard come from?

Thanks for looking, first of all, Matan thanks for the editing job.

Well Alan and Rob thanks for the comments.

I did use your pics from NTC Rob for the MILES.
The laser detector are half-sphere in transparent plastic found in a store for fake jewelry. I painted the bottom black and leave it like that, so you have a funny visual effect that i tuned painting the other quarter of the sphere.

The periscope received the outstanding decals from AFV ( a must have).

The board is from PAM Dumvee kit, but Dirk can sell it to you without the complete kit. The rest of the equipments are from Legend, Goffy, PAM and Trumpeter.

Regarding the slat, I am crazy enough to think about a MEV with slat since donor kit can be complete in nearly a day so I will have time to work on the slat.

But There is no Slat for MEV on the market (yes/no ???) so extra work will be necessary
