Review of The Trumpeter LAV-AD
Scroll down for more detail and pictures
This Trumpeter kit was fairly cheap and simple in its construction. It’s part of a series of USMC LAV models which looks good. It was very quick and easy to build as it is the 5th of its kind that I have done.
I airbrushed on Tamiya acrylic paint XF-67 NATO green. I used 752 (blue) on the sights. Finally I used Humbrol Enamel white satin (130) and Revell 31 & 30 for all the lights.
Building the mini gun was great fun and you have a choice of which rocket launchers to add. The only thing I’m disapointed with, is that the turret has large windows so it would have been create to have built some more details in the cab like crew or seats.
