Hello everybody,
 
the German manufacturer Perfect Scale offers a brand new kit of the German ARV "Wisent" in 1:35. The kit won the titel "Model of the Year" in Nuremberg this year.
 
It is a huge kit... in a huge box.... full of finest resin parts with great details.... great quality.... Plus a huge fret with photo etched parts, wire, decals and a mounting instruction.
 
Its a complete kit, nothing else is necessary. But I am planning to use a Friul track instead of the resin tracks of the kit.... but that's all.
 
The fitting is great - nearly the same as a "normal" plastic kit ...

All you need now is a Leopard to go with your Buffalo.  Good start.

Multi-color resin?

 

Thank you.

Yep, multi color .... don't ask me why, only the color is different, the material is exactly the same .... feels the same, could be worked in the same way..... only the color is different... some parts white, some parts grey.... no idee why ....  :hmmm:

Hello,
 
some progress... most of the parts are mounted and the sub assemblies are ready for a first black primer. The parts get some time to dry now until I get the correct Danish Green of Hataka.
 
The antennas have to be changed as these were not correct of fhe Danish Army....

Hello @ all,
 
the Wisent is painted in its base colors. I have used Hataks Danish Green, but gave it some yellow/green filter of Vallejo color, as the Danish Wisent has a more brighter and a bit yellowish green than the standard Danish Army green.
 
Also the sockets of the antennas are replaced by two real springs and resin parts of Leopardclub, the antenna follows later. The gun barrel needs to be replaced as the Danish one looks a bit different. I found a good looking one of company Master.
 
Now I will start the painting of all the small details, lamps and all the other small stuff. Also the decals follow next.... before some oil colors follow.
