1,200 parts and about 300 hours later it's ready for some paint! Hands down the most difficult model I have ever attempted!





I have started painting the running gear, as they will be hard to reach with the skirts attached.



Thanks for looking!

Dear Ryan

Let me tell you again, it looks great, I see that there is reward in my hard work, and of course of Legends and your even hardest work.

Yes thank you Robert, I had the first Puma book to go by early on in the build....luckily a friend of mine had a copy I could borrow. The second book I bought as soon as it came out and cleared up more questions I had as well as placement of certain fittings.

The kit itself is over 10 years old and research available on the Puma was hard to find I'd imagine. It would be tough to build a somewhat accurate model of it without your books!

Thanks, it is actually several kits and sets....

Legend Puma
Legend Centurion Road Wheels (don't even use the kits wheels, way undersized)
Legend FN Mag set
Legend IDF stowage set
Legend Mine Roller Adapter
AFV Club tracks
AFV Club NATO Centurion
And of course my own scratch built items!
