Very nice. It looks like the Hobby Boss AAVP7A1 RAMS/RS w/EAAK kit to me. Good job on it.

Wasn't this build featured in a recent Modell Fan magazine article?

It's nice to have more photos here.

Cheers,

Gentlemen!
I am very sorry for my late reply. This posting completely passed me by.
Thank you for your kind words!
The kit is the Hobby Boss kit as assumed by HeavyArty. It's build OOB with the exeption of the track, which are from Friul
Indeed the got a 10 page build-up coverage in the ModellFan magazine.
I am not a very versed armor modeller, but I have to say that the kit gave me a lot of fun. Due to the high parts count the model took me some 100 hours to finish.
I'd certainly recommend it to those looking for more than a weekend project.

Cheers,
Guido
