I too must dig my second one out, I started doing two Warriors in a Bosnia diorama but wanted to do the second one with the doors open but didn't feel comfortable scratchbuilding one then, but now I know about this interior set, i might get it started again in the new year.

the new kit (the iraq 2003) is the better kit as they have updated the front armour which is wrong in the first kit.

both kit need the side armour bringing forward by 2mm as they are in the wrong postions.

the tracks in both kits are rubbish, so i have replaced mine with metal frulli ones ( has taken 3 to 4 days just to build the tracks.

the wheel arms need to be dropped as the ride height is to high in there orginal postions.

the accurate armour interior is excellent, aslong as you take your time and double check there locations befor fitting, i had to do a little trimming to get the roof to sit right.

but other than that id been a dream :-)


i have built one before it quite a time consuming kit due to all the little bits needed to put it together

i will post more as i go

cheers

Hi Phil

the box on the front is part of the uparmoured version and is there to protect the driver, it includes side skirts but i havn't got to those as yet.

will it be in a diorama, i car't believe you had to ask :-)

cheers
