The last touch ups are done, so now I call the FUG ready for working. Later I will add the dozer blade as a load …
This is sure no easy “add glue and shake” kit as I have noticed. It is my first Takom kit and I hope others from that company are not so difficult to build. The fitting of the head lights is not very good, they are too big. So I had to sand them to make them fit very tight to the socket. But now in the end, I really like how the FUG came out. Main paint I used was Bronzegrün No. 65 (RAL 6031) from Revell. Final coating was made for the first time with a 80/20 mix of Revell Clear Matt and Gloss.

The FUG is made by the company Steinbock, that’s why it’s also sometimes just named “Steinbock” (Ibex), which would fit the Bundeswehr common terminology to give their vehicles animal names.
I want to thank everybody, who has followed my build. A special thanks goes to Hans-Hermann Bühling:
Danke, Hans-Hermann, für die vielen Bilder. Die haben mir so manches Mal aus der Patsche geholfen, wenn ich nicht weiter wußte. Vielen Dank dafür!
