  1. Miscellaneous Items for IBG Rosomak APC 1:35 Master The IBG Rosomak Polish armoured personnel carrier is a superb kit in its own right. But, naturally, MASTER models have found a way of improving it with the three sets reviewed here. [GM-35-013] – Although designed for the IBG kit, this single straight aerial set could be used on other vehicles. The set includes the aerial, the aerial spring base and two elements, as MASTER describe them. These elements are attached to the base, and are in fact protective covers for the aerial base if the aerial itself is removed, so you only need to fit one. Suffice to say they are very small and well protected in their foam square within the package. [GM-35-014] – Another aerial set for the Rosomak, or any other vehicle with a similar aerial set up. This set includes the aerial, bent spring base, the same elements as above, a small sheet of etched brass and a length of fine cord. The aerial is glued to the base unit along with the elements, then, one of the PE tensioning rope rings is bent to shape and slide over the top of the aerial, while another pair of rings are attached to the turret with two brass rivets, for which a 0.5mm hole is required. The cable is run from one turret ring, via a carabineer and cable mounted eye ring, through the aerial ring and back to the other turret ring, with the same set up as the first ensuring it has the right tension. [GM-35-015] – Smoke grenade launchers. This set is for the Rosomak vehicles with the 30mm turret. It consists of a resin plate, brass launcher tubes, two types of resin covers and five brass rivets. The brass tubes are fitted into the tubes on the resin plate, the choice of cover decided upon and attached. The plate is then fitted to the kit turret and five 0.5mm holes drilled, into which the brass rivets are glued. Conclusion Here we have three more very useful and attractive sets. The aerial look great, but are easily bent and care should be taken if displaying near children, particularly at shows, as they are very sharp and could easily hurt someone looking too closely. The smoke launcher set is very nice, but prepare to test your eyes with the rivets. This goes for the cable attachment points on the bent aerials set too. Review sample courtesy of Piotr at
  2. KTO Rosomak - Polish APC 1:35 IBG Models The KTO Rosomak is an 8x8 multi-role vehicle produced under licence by Rosomak SA a Polish Defence company. The vehicle is licenced by Patria of Finland. The Patria AMV (Armoured Modular Vehicle) was designed like many of the current generation of wheeled armoured vehicles to be able to fit many different types of body on the same chassis. The vehicle is deigned to withstand 30mm rounds and has a very good level of mine protection. Poland is the biggest user of this APC with 997 delivered or on order. There are a few different configurations in use. This version features the standard 30mm Canon turret. These vehicles were deployed to Chad in 2008/9 by the Polish Army. The Kit This is the first kit the reviewer has seen from IBG and it looks impressive. There are 14 sprues of tan plastic, a clear sprue, 8 tyre treads and a sheet of photo-etch. The quality of the moulding is excellent, with crisp parts and no flash or defects visible. I full engine bay and interior is provided for the vehicle if the modeller want to goto town and add it all in. Unlike other wheeled APC kits the wheels are not rubber tyres but IBG have come up with a novel solution. The hubs and tyre side walls as moulded together and these add into the outer tread part with the join at a mould seam on the tyre. Construction starts by building up all eight of the wheels which are then put to one side. Following this the four transmission boxes for the four axles are made up along with an additional transmission component; these are also set aside. A side locker and various hatches are then assembled also to be set aside. The next step is to assemble interior components (again for set aside) the drivers compartment is built up as are the eight passenger seats for the rear. The engine is the next sub-assembly to be made up (yep you guesses it for set aside again!) this is well moulded unit made up from 22 parts, but leaving room for extra detailing if the modeller wants. The main chassis is now put together and build very much like the real thing with 4 side beams held together with 14 cross members. Once together the set aside transmission parts can be added in. The suspension units now need to be added, these are complicated with 20 parts each side so pay attention to the instructions. The instructions have you add the wheels next though I suspect most modellers will leave these off until the end. Construction then moves onto the interior of the APC. The seats are added to the rear compartment along with various lockers and internal structures. The bulkheads for the engine compartment are added and the drivers console installed. Once this is in the engine can be installed as well. For the rear of the APC two shrouded propellers are added which move the APC through water. The lockers built earlier are also added at this stage. The rear bulkhead is installed along with the doors. If leaving these open it might be best to leave them until nearer the end. Moving now to the top part of the APC hull hatches the the main driver hatch are built up and added. A spare tyre mount is provided for the front of the vehicle, though check your references before adding it as it was not always fitted. No spare wheel is provided for the mount. The main top hull is further built up with more parts and grab handles. PE is used for the grills over the engine compartment. The last major component of construction is the turret fitted to this vehicle. This is the standard infantry support version with a 30mm cannon. As with the rest of the vehicle a full interior is provided here as well. The turret basket is completed with the operators position and the commanders position. The basket is added to the lower turret ring along with the gun mount. The main single part turret top is then added over this. Additional armour is then added to the outside of the turret along with the crew hatches and viewing periscopes. The turret is then added to the hull. Decals There are two sets of markings for vehicles used in Chad in 2009. These feature both the EUFOR and UN markings. An additional set is for a Polish based vehicle. Conclusion This is a good new kit of a relatively unknown out side of Poland APC. Highly recommended for those who would like something a little different. Review sample courtesy of
  3. KTO Rosomak with OSS-M Turret 1:35 IBG Models The KTO Rosomak is an 8x8 multi-role vehicle produced under licence by Rosomak SA a Polish Defence company.

The Patria AMV (Armoured Modular Vehicle) was designed like many of the current generation of wheeled armoured vehicles to be able to fit many different types of body on the same chassis. The vehicle is deigned to withstand 30mm rounds and has a very good level of mine protection. Poland is the biggest user of this APC with 997 delivered or on order. There are a few different configurations in use. This version features the OSS-M turret which can be armed with either a 40mm grenade launcher, 12.7mm heavy machine gun or a 7.62mm light machine gun. These vehicles were deployed to Chad in 2008/9 by the Polish Army. The Kit This is the first kit the reviewer has seen from IBG and it looks impressive.

Both are supplied in the kit and it is up to the modeller to check their references for which one to fit. The turret is built up from a base part, two sides, front & back. Armoured glass is represented by clear parts. To finish construction the lower and upper hulls are joined and the turret fitted on via an adaptor ring, Decals There are two sets of markings for vehicles used in Chad in 2009.
