1/35 Trumpeter ‘SAM6 Launcher’

I don’t really do Modern Russian stuff, not sure why?, just never really caught my attention. However this did, and just after I ordered it, my IPMS club announced our group build for the year was ‘Russian’, so excellent timing.

I’m happy with the kit, came out well. I DID NOT enjoy the tracks, sometimes I do miss the good old one piece ones you do still occasionally get with kits. The ones on this one fitted fine but trying to get the right curve to them took a bit of work and some bad words! haha.

Im trying to not get carried away with lots of after market stuff on all my kits (but fail usually), but this time I did well and on this build all I added was the large folded up tent on the deck from my spares box.
I particularly like the contrast of the dirty tank and the clean missiles that look like they have just been freshly loaded.
