This is a simply little model kit, but it would have fantastic potential in a diorama or just as an addition to your display case....or if you want to have fun.....enter it in a contest and see what category it gets slotted into.  In the hands of a super detailer, this kit has fantastic potential.  If built correctly the arm will be moveable, which is ideal for a diorama.

This little robot should be of interest to any modern AFV modeler.
