Then after the first 8 stages you end up with most of the lower chassis done

More done today - fitted the wheels and the steering linkages, then finished off the driver's controls - still need to add the control panel for the second driver.

Interesting to watch this build as I have built a couple of the old Tamiya Sd.Kfz.232 kits with the "roof rack" antennae, I have always been tempted to get one of these newer AFV club kits, perhaps at the right price.  BTW  how do you manage to find anything in your modelling space?

More done - first coat of red oxide primer

More hairspray followed by Desert Yellow

Then damp brush to wear down the paint

Then made up the mudguards

Then painted the wheels, and proceeded with the same painting scheme for the mudguards

Nice.

I have wanted to get one of these for a long time.

Perhaps when the time (and price) is right.

It is a pity that AFV Club have omitted the Notek rear Light installation in this kit although it is there on part CC14. The lamp should be attached to part D19 in step 36 of the instructions but funnily enough they have placed the un-numbered part in steps 41, 42 and 43. The dreaded cut and paste errors occur here as well.
