British R-R Armored Car
By Gil Gonsoulin
Meng’s 1/35 British R-R Armored Car can be built as either a WWI or WWII version. The main difference being the wheels and weapons. There are a few other changes but they are minor.
On to the kit itself. There are some very small parts that require careful removal from the trees. Also some of the ones on my kit were already broken – that just made things even more difficult.
Be very careful removing the headlight brackets! On the WWII version, the machine gun ring is crazy. Whoever designed it never had to put it together. Also the front wheels have a very positive camber. It looks odd but that’s the way the front axle is made.
I chose to build the WWII version and used three Floquil paints for the camo pattern. Tamiya rubber black was used on the tires. Weathering was done with Winsor-Newton oils.
