A word about painting. The camo pattern provided is not entirely correct, but that can be neglected. More important is the painting of the bomblet "armor". In 1/1 scale the surfaces of the vehicle are covered with mats with the "hairs" attached to it. This means that the overall surface is flat black. Since RFM provided the mats as individual parts, its easy to paint them black and then glue it to the surface. I noticed that the painting instructions provided by Ammo of MIG are sadly flawed.

Ah, a worthy replacement for the venerable Marder and a good kit to boot! Thanks for the heads-up on the painting.

Hans-Hermann, Could you please tell us what's flawed with Mig's painting instructions ? This kit is a leading candidate for me in the Bundeswehr build campaign and I want to get it right.
Thanks Kevin for the review!

There some minor differnces in the pattern. Given the fact that only few people were close enough to the track, its all right. I suggest checking available pics.

I saw the Bundeswehr camo pattern plan, but it only for military personnel. (Which I am not.)
