No the anti skid is only on the turret, the hull is as all the other AFV club strykers, no anti skid. I'm currently building this kit right now.

I believe he is asking about the actual vehicle. The anti-slip is on pretty much all the horizontal/near horizontal surfaces of the hull.

That's what I could tell from the pics. The only horizontal surface I couldn't tell it was on was the areas on top of the tool boxes on the hull sides. I wasn't even sure if that was sturdy enough for a person to stand on.

Just like the bins on the Abrams. A nice effect is too show it flaking off with the bare metal underneath.

mogdude,
If your asking what is the whitish/grayish area on the picture I posted from y review article, it is Mr.Surfacer I use to represent for anti-slip.
