Trumpeter M 1132 Stryker ESV

Here is my new project.
A Trumpeter Stryker.
I have completed the complete suspension and wheels.
So far no problems encountered.

Thank you for starting your Trumpeter M 1132 Stryker ESV here on planetarmor.
Looks like an unlimited amount of detail from right out of the box.
I know this is going to be another great build.
Looking forward to further updates.

Alex,

Yes, I to think it looks good.
I do not understand why so many people do not like the Trumpeter Strykers.

These 8 wheeled vehicles are just so cool. Just gotta love them.

Hello,

After some time away from the bench due to work and family matters, I finally had some time to work on the stryker again.
Todays work was all on the rear plate and crew acces door.






This is also my first decent attempt at PE, other than engine screens.
All comments welcome.

Tony

looks like pretty good model...
i like it how this 8x8 vehicles looks so strange when they are unpainted... wheels look so thin and totally wrong, but when everything is painted and weathered then it all comes together =)
this version has that RC 50cal. on top?

If you mean by that the remote weapon system, then yes.

Since I had a little time left, I have started on the upper hull.






That is all I had time for today.
