1/35th M973 SUSV (Small Unit Support Vehicle)
Living in Alaska, I guess the snow kind of gets in your blood. People own lots of toys for snow fun up here including the US Army. So when I found Firing Line’s 1/35 resin/white metal/photo-etch BV-206 I ordered it right away from David J Parkins’s Store. And when Takom came out with their 1/35th BV-205S, I ordered two of their kits-one to build, one as a parts donor. I’ll admit, I did not look forward to building Firing Line’s photo-etch tracks (the kit sat on my shelf for a couple years as a result) so I shortened Takom’s rubber-bands and made it work. I haven’t really seen this kit built so while my rendition isn’t perfect I think it looks the part. I couldn’t resist adding Mantis’s moose to set the scene either. This is my first post here as well, having lurked on the site for a while enjoying everyone else’s stuff-all I can say is “wow”! There are some really talented modelers here that inspire me.
