Since this model also has an interior, no massive block is built. Instead, thin walls are built. First we finish the crew compartment and then take care of the entire cockpit including the front. Both parts are then connected. Unfortunately Sluban seems to only use the simple paper stickers. These don’t always match in color.

We continue with the roof and the attached machine cannon. The position of the front tires can be changed. However, there is no proper steering. Despite the many small details, the model is quite stable. The loose bricks don’t seem to exist at Sluban anymore.


For well under 20 EUR there is a nice military set that is also suitable for playing.
