NigelR32 Posted December 31, 2013 Share Posted December 31, 2013 Hello everyone, This is going to be my first build project here on LSM. I need a break from Aircraft, so thought I'd do an OOB Military build. I picked this up at a very reasonable price, so thought it wouldn't be too much of a shame to build it OOB. This is the later version of Karl, which utilised a different suspension set up from the earlier version. Both versions have the ability to raise and lower their suspension, and Trumpeter give the option of modelling either kit in the raised or lowered position. This kit is also kitted by dragon, but according to some reviews on the 'net, the Trumpeter is the better kit as far as content and detail is concerned but it is also a far more complex build, so beginners or someone who wants a "quick build" should maybe go with the Dragon kit. This is the box top. The kit number is 00209. Notice the wording on the box top, it states some kit features... 840mm long with 1251 parts!! Upon removal of the box top you will find Trumpeters normal great packaging, with many boxed parts and bubblewrap or foam protecting fragile areas of the sprues. The total number of sprues is a massive 30, plus upper and lower hull, tracks and no less than 8 rail sections. Just look at all that plastic!! Will I start this today...maybe??? 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
