Now this is what I have in mind when I talk about wanting to get an RV!

And the wife thinks I mean a Winnebago.

I found this thread on another web sight and I'm not sure if they are showing that there was a gap here or something else. If some one can translate what they are posting, we can be for sure.



Another M1127 In-Progress Build


But just in case if they are saying that there is a problem in the fit of the Real Model hull to the AFV hull, I started to build mine and I had no problem with fit or gaps. You can see here that there was a good fit and no gap was present.





As you can see here, I did have to add some putty under the hull where the pour block was removed and the upper hull met the lower hull.



I know that Milo already showed us his in -progress shots of this kit before he placed it on the market, but i wanted to start a build blog from an average modeler like myself. So stay tuned and I will start a thread and show such things that I have here.

I will certainly stay tuned. I got to see the Real Model LAV III in person at the LHS this weekend and it looked great. Looking forward to your blog Pete.
