Soviet Aerosan RF-8/GAZ-98

Mr.Russian Snow sled

Dropped by the local hobbyshop the other day and as usual came home with something: Trumpeter's Soviet Aerosan RF-8/GAZ-98 and at under $10 it was a steal - and what an interesting subject! The box contents come complete with two figures in winter gear, die-cut acetate for the windshield and headlamp, decals for one vehicle and a PE fret containing two gun sites. Instructions are straight forward and the inclusion of a full color painting guide is a nice touch. Though packed with detail and a decent parts count, I think this would make for a great weekend project. Maybe deciding what to work on next will be a very easy choice indeed! _pL
