As soon as Dragon released this kit, I rushed to buy it, but when it was in my hands, I had a lot of doubts about how it would look once built. I wanted to build the African version , my mind visualized it yellow with no camo and I believed it would look like a toy and not real. Thinking the problem through, I considered the hairspray technique would be what I was looking for to get the finish that satisfied me…..and my model. Thus, I started with the construction.


The kit content is very complete: three small frets of etched parts, metal 75mm barrel individual link “magic track”, well detailed parts. I just had to try the fit of parts.


Step 1

In this step when assembling the running gear, we should choose the version we are going to build in order to decide which type of drive sprocket and idler wheel we will use.

Parts G8 and G7; G5 and G6 could be glued in different angles, thus I used as guide the position of part Z, the tub, aligning the parts with the torsion bars of the wheels and the bump stops.

The same happens with D3, D6, D5 and D4 and I proceeded in the same way.

Parts C37 that hold the fenders in place are very fragile and easy to break during the assembly, this is why I kept them aside to be glued later.
