Default RoG GTK Boxer

this is the latest 1/35 kit from revell. It is the German Armys answer to the Stryker/LAV series vehicles. The Boxer. same basic layout as a Stryker except that the Boxer is HUGE. It outsizes the Stryker in every aspect. One particularly interesting feature is that the vehicle is modular. You can see a demarcation line around the model. That is intentional. The back half of the vehicle can be removed and a new module for an ambulance, gun vehicle, AT vehicle or other specialized purpose can be installed. The revell kit is made to show this but i chose to glue the module in place. I dont play with my stuff.

The kit fits together overall very well. the module on the back is a tight fit and i had issues getting the forward engine deck plate to fit flush. The model is broken down to use only 2 part molds. No slide molds. This in turn allows it to be sold relatively cheaply. I only paid 26 bucks. The revell kit also represents the actual production vehicle. Not so with the hobby boss kit. It represents a test prototype. Even though the kit is "flat pack" in nature it comes in a massive box for a current 1/35 model.

Basic assembly is complete as is base and detail painting. The model is 100% out of box. I still have some weathering to go on it and then it will be fully finished. This was an overall enjoyable build and i cant wait to see what revell germany has in store. Maybe a 1/72 Flakpanzer Gepard based on the Leo 1 chassis!
