Dear All
Please find my work on the LAV-III not OOB but with the PE and resins wheels from ET Model

Enjoy comments welcome









I did some correction regarding the attached point in order to have parallel to the ground and I turned the wheels.
Nice addition from ET model are the ID plates, the rear basket is a little bended.

Cheers

Nice work so far!

Don't worry about the bent spare tire mount, they end that way eventually.

Sometimes they are completely missing LOL.

Seb,
nice work on the LAV - especially the PE work looks great. Are the ET PEs good to work with? I remember a pe-set of them that was completely sturdy.

Like to follow this build.

Keep on the good work.
Cheers
Walter

Hi Seb, Greetings from Trinidad & Tobago. I have followed your work for seem like some years. I admire you for what you do with the kit in front of you and not going crazy with the rivet counting and AMS. I bought and received this kit this week, it is my first Trumpeter Stryker (I have all AFV's). One question I have, who sell ET MODELS sets. I normally deal with Lucky Models, Rolls Models and Great Models, I can't remember ever seeing this brand at their stores. Anyway, good luck with your model, I'll be following with interest.

Seb, again a very clean work on your stunning project. Your build is very interesting and a good source for my own planned project ... sometime in the future ;-)

Hiya!!!

The builds looking great mate, ive just started mine using the same kits.
One question though, do the flatter looking wheels go to the rear as im led to believe that these wagons are quite tail heavy.

Cant wait to see the finished product.

Looks like you enjoy pe as much as I do. I'm still learning and builds like yours inspire me. Are you using a tool made just for bending pe or razor blades?
