The construction of the Stridsvagn 103C is divided into 2 construction phases with a total of 84 construction steps. Due to the grayed out previous construction steps and only a few parts per construction step, the model is easy to build.


The construction of the Stridsvagn is divided into several construction phases. The first step is to build the upper part of the hull. For this purpose, panels are used that are clad with slopes, wedges and tiles after just a few layers.

After the upper part has been completed, the part that is normally started with other models of tanks is built.

Since the hull must be able to tilt, the lower hull with the running and drive rollers is divided into 2 steps. The middle part with the rollers is connected to the upper part via hinges.

There are no differences between the chains. These are linked and pulled up just like you are used to from other models. Only then is the lower armor attached to the stern. Since the Stridsvagn is also used to level the ground or to dig out positions, it also has a movable blade on the front.

Finally, the side skirts and the gun are built and attached to the tank.


This tank is not only an extraordinary vehicle in the original. The construction of the model is also different from what you are used to. If you don’t just want to have ordinary models in your collection, you can hardly ignore this completely printed piece.
