This is insanely awesome! But you should continue the build as a blog in the armour/afv forum where it will get more coverage!

Thanks!

I am very satisfied with the kit. There is some cleaning of the parts required and dryfitting is a must, but then everything just fits very well. The details are accurate and very well done. Decals are extra thin and no silvering. The subject is quite complex itself, suspension especially, but nevertheless Panda did a great job IMO putting it all together. I can always recommend this kit.

Thanks Rob, I will continue there.

You've done an amazing job on the piping! The rest of your detailing is excellent too.
Keep on posting !

superfrelon, if you are referring to the shock tubes usually found inside the spring assembly, then skuki is correct as the springs have nothing inside of them. The shock tube is outside of the spring just behind the springs themselves.

Hi everybody

Here are few pictures of the current progress.

I have decided to fill the windows with crystal resin from inside.

However, first atempt was an epic failure. I was pwned by the resin very seriously.

The problem is that I didn't messuare the ratio (2:1) exactly and in combination with diffusing the resin all over you get the jack pot.

When pouring the resin it is essential that you fill it over the edge, because if you don't it will be very concaved and everything inside will look deformed.

You can see that on two of the pictures. Now, when it is dry, I have to clean a bit arround the windows.

Unfortunatelly, the side windows were fail again. But, I will be able to fix it, I hope.

You can see on last picture one drop of crystal resin on the light.

bye for now

Hi Marko,

Awsome build, great work on the suspension and cabling. Can I ask, did you tint the clear resin for the windows when pouring or have you painted them once set.

Great work.

Chris.

Hmmmm.. At least you got all your windows. Mine was missing one of the front windshields strait from the plastic bag. Been trying to figure out how to replace it. I'm not messing with resin so I may have to cut one from clear styrene

Is there anyone who can sell me Blast CROWS for this kit?

I can pay by paypal.

I did visit their site and I did order few things yesterday, but CROWS was indicated as "deactivated" or something lik that. Still waiting for the replay.

Thanks in advance
