I love the look of the Fennek but that turret really makes it, I am stunned at how good it looks.

Thanks Volkodav....they do look like they were akways meant to br together :)

Decals on and working on the lights & mirrors. The mirrors still need clean-up around the edges but I used very reflective silver sheet, like aluminimum foil but lighter and less wrinkly, for the mirrors.
Then some light weathering and we're done!



But one of my IPMS Ireland colleagues pointed out if it's an IDF vehicle it should have extra racks of jerry cans etc :) Might have to see what can be done

This build is making me really appreciate the Fennek & the turret. 8)

Go for it Wombat! :) Two great kits that together are better than the sum of their parts...

Just the wipers to be added and the aerials painted and then its done:

Sweet, I'm forwarding these photos to our defence minister along with the request we buy / build several hundred of the real thing for the ADF.  ;)

Maybe as an alternate to the Thales Hawkei under LAND 121 Phase 4...

I'm calling this one done!
Thanks for watching & commenting on what has been a really enjoyable project. I'll get some nice posed pics tomorrow with a plain background in natural light.



Sorry, don't know why the first link didn't work

Ah huh, Hawkie isn't a shoe in as the JTLV is perhaps the preferred option.  Fennec looks better than either.
