To ensure that this model fits in with the rest of the Armed Forces series, it is of course in 1:35 scale. But that also means that you have to forego details or even interior design. The included figure also cannot be placed in the cockpit, which consists of a solid block of printed bricks. First, the truck is completely built, which does not pose any major requirements.

But you then have to face this with the launcher. Due to the scale, this is sometimes quite unstable. You also can’t get to every place that needs to be pressed. Here and there a few parts tend to fall off. The 6 rocket tubes are very stable. Once everything is assembled, it is more stable, but it is not 100% suitable. Some parts can only be attached on one side because they come loose again due to tension on the opposite side. In addition to the minifigure, there is also a multi-colored printed nameplate.


Even though there are a few small challenges during construction, it is a nice model. You can immediately see which vehicle it is. It fits in beautifully with the rest of the Armed Forces series.
