Michael, I'm going for the "full fat" version with the armoured commanders turret & am loosely basing it on a Royal engineers version seen in Iraq in 2008. Pat, I have never used the paper netting for thermal blankets, only ever used it for stowage etc. The tetra stuff is much more robust and you can't rip it like the paper netting.
I'm romping along with this at the moment and it's just so much fun to build. Hat's off to Takom for a really great kit. Let's hope they release more versions in the future, I would definitely buy them! All the thermal blankets have now been sorted, again using the post it note method for templates. It was pretty easy to do as well. Most of the details have now been added as well with a few enhancements and scratch bits here and there.
