Hi all
I've just started the G6 kit by Takom and would like some pictures of the driver compartment.
Google wasn't really helpful neither with a general walkaround nor with cockpit close-up pictures.
Could anyone point me to a decent source of information?
TIA

A few pics here. Some details may differ from the current version used by the SAAF as this museum vehicle (that must have seen better days ) appears to be a prototype... :

Merci H.P.
it looks like the driver's compartment of the prototype is different from the production vehicle. Or Takom would have invented the interior parts and colors.

Thank you for the other pics which will prove useful.

That's a walkaround John

H.P., unfortunately the only driver interior pictures available seem to be the prototype.

I have posted my build of the Takom kit on the new forum.

I don’t know whether this was something reserved for me or more widespread but one of the boxes which encloses a rear stabilising jack was incomplete in mine. Just needs a piece of styrene sheet to fill the gap (copy the part for the other side) but it will look odd if left as is.

And I’ll be replacing the platform outside the turret hatch, as it’s supposed to be open. Not decided whether to fabricate or print it yet.

Other than those, I’m very impressed with the kit.
