hello, im jasson from japan.... im doing scale modeling for years except military models.. i have done my first semi successful tank builds before but right now im kinda interested in wheeled AFVs since tanks from ww2 to modern era is too mainstream for my taste..

i was looking for a wheeled AFVs that are:

-beginner friendly

-it has 2 detailing part choices between PE and plastic since i dont have any experience in building kits with PE

-few part counts (if there is one though)

Hi Jasson,
Glad to have you on board. Regarding your request I would recommend almost any of the Tamiya WWII armored cars. They have kits of various American, German, British and Russian armored cars. While these kits mostly don't have pe included there are after market items available for many of them if you're wanting to super detail them. The parts counts are reasonable many in the 100 - 200 parts range and Tamiya kits are known for their fit and general ease of assembly. Tamiya kits are also available from a large number of vendors and are often available on ebay.
Hope this helps.
John
