Well, I'VE SEEN IT ALL NOW! You should get modeler of the year for this. Putting an interior in a 1/35th is one thing, but in this small of a scale? And scratch built on top of that?!!

Truly amazing and makes all other interior work take a back seat. Nice work!

Amazing job on the interior !
I did one for the Dragon kit and found it was already difficult to fix the AEF resin parts. Building one entirely from scratch and in braille scale, you like the true challenges.

Got to say that this really is impressive! I've seen a few others here do similar but at this scale, how much is anyone really going to be able to see?

@njtp80,

That is outstanding work! You’ve even added the external add-on armor with what appears to be brass rivets.

Keep it coming,

Thanks, unfortunately this kit doesn't come with photo etched parts, so i have to make it by myself. drill the hole and put through the thin wire to make rivets.

That is some serious scratch building there njtp80! Is this BMP going on your MAZ transporter?

This is a lot of good and hard work.
Do you intend to glue the hull or you'll make it removable?
Leave the rear doors open perhaps?


P.A.

Hull will be glued, but turret is removable, you can see everything after take away the turret.

ACE kits comes with very thick plastic parts, no way cut off the rear door and make it open, i have tried it out, will damage it.

Amazing level of detail! What a shame you won't be able to leave the rear doors open. Looking forward to seeing it finished!
Cheers,

@njtp80,

There’s more detail parts added to your kit than on a larger build of the same vehicle. See if you could place a coin next to your work so everyone can see just how intricate and detailed the kit really is!
