1/35 Trumpeter Stryker M1135 NBC RV, with interior

As Bob Ross didn’t say, every Stryker needs a friend, so gotta give him a friend.

……… and here it comes: the Trumpeter M1135 Stryker NBC RV!!!

This one should accompany my recently built M1133 Medical Evacuation Vehicle ( http://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=SquawkBox&file=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=283111&page=1 ) in a possible diorama.

As usual, I started with the running gear and once more steered the two front axes.

As I intend to show this Stryker with open hatches, interior parts will be necessary. Therefore I will use parts of the Trumpeter M1129 Stryker Mortar kit. And, of course, I will have to make some parts on my own.

This time I paid some attention to the vehicle’s floor. I wanted to bring it to the same height as the open two-part access door. I did so by gluing sheet panels on the structure of the kit’s floor.

I also opened the window at the rear NBC module.

The first interior part I built was the rear chair. It has been a leftover from REVELL’s Wolf, jet a little bit padded.

So much for today.

Next on program: the Joint Biological Point Detection System.

The Joint Biological Point Detection System!

I used pictures from Ralph Zwilling’s fantastic internet side: Tank-Masters.de, in order to build the interior of the M1135 NBC RV, as references.

The following two pictures by tank-masters.de, show the Joint Biological Point Detection System in the inside of a M1135 Stryker vehicle:

ANBC 07

As I didn’t have the dimensions, I used these photos to first build a paper model of the Joint Biological Point Detection System and the Mass Spectrometer behind it.

Using this as rule model I started constructing with plastic cards.

More to come soon.

Interesting project!

Impressive project. A friend of mine did the same for the French VAB equivalent. Good luck with the interior.
