Trumpeter 1/35 Lav-25 Contents by enc86 Trumpeter 1/35 Lav-25 Contents by enc86
As requested by :iconeire41: here is the kit contents and in-box review of a Trumpeter 1/35 USMC LAV-25 "Piranha"
the kit comes in the usual trumpeter sturdy as heck box, featuring some cool art of the beast. the kit can be found around the internet for under $25 us.

Kit contents:
1 direction booklet
1 color paint reference chart, for one Nato and U.N
1 small( and i mean small) decal sheet for UN an SFOR
Lower Hull
Upper Hull
Turret top
8 rubber wheels
sheet of black mesh
clear plastic part sheet
3 good sized Runners of parts for Lav-25
about 6 runners of parts( of different sizes) for 4 figurines, featuring great details and some cool guns

The parts look very clean, with little to no flash, only slight mold seems, but has some big injection marks( but looks to be hidden when built) the hulls dry fit like a dream and have great built in detail. there is some nice pitted textures molded in some of the plastic as well. for the price point( i found mine for $18.us) this looks to be an extremely nice kit, and a worthy addition to any 1/35 fan's collection.

If you look at the whole thing, you get overwhelmed.
Most people don't get it's just step 1, step 2, then step 3 combines the first two and so on; one step at a time.

Thanks lad for showing me this, my birthday is in April and so I may be allowed this as an early birthday present XD

Is the manual easy to follow, or is it one of complicated ones?

you are welcome buddy, glad i could help. Looks to be a very nice kit.

the manual looks pretty straight forward, and doesn't look very difficult. half the runners you see are for the figurines. dont see anything in it i havnt seen befor and doesn't have anything crazy.
tho i will warn you the manual opens very weird, and i still haven't been able to fold it back right lol. its now big deal, but weird.

Don't forget the lace trim over the wheels....
The SS divisions were know for their lace doily work on tanks, y'know.
It's a much sited historical fact.
...along with the polka-dotted unicorn bunnies wearing chaps into battle that they rode.

Because, as we all know; they were used extensively by Hessian raiders against the Vermont militia during the Revolutionary War.

My favorite is the story of 'Cross-eyed' Revere.
And his famous quote: "Two if by land, and two if by flying saucer!"

It was so tragic...killed by being run-over by a cyclops. So ironic.
