Mgebrov-White - WWI russian armored car - 1/35 - Major Models

Here is an odd-ball one, for you to taste....

Mgebrov-White...Major Models - 1/35



Their "resin" seems plaster ... extremely fragile and brittle ...Parts in white metal (very soft) complete the package...

The kit conditioned in a box of fine cardboard...


The instructions are spartan, but the kit comes with a metal stencil in very thin metal...



Parts of the kit:


When I photographed the kit, it had already glued the front and rear axes:


As the inferior portion was full of holes, I decided "open" the hull kit, to have access to bowelses ... Through these holes, I could reinforce and to correct the "floor" of the kit:


I set up the wheels, for verification of the alignment. Mgebrov used solid tires...


Here is the thing seen for back, showing your "intimate parts" :


The assembly was super-fast.The big challenge was to turn the rear turret movable...




And the big monster´s almost ready :

That is one weird bird indeed Marcos. As always you have done a wonderful job on this build, not counting the speed. Truly excellent work
