"Nice kit of a tough looking ASV"
rockykeele (Tucson, AZ)
Trumpeter's M117 is a very detailed, fun kit of a modern armored security vehicle. Although there is no interior, the kit has lots of detail and nice features on the exterior, including photo etched brass for exhaust screens, tail light assemblies, suspension detail, wheel well armor applique and vision block sun visor. The builder also gets clear parts for headlights, tail lights, spotlight, armored glass for crew and vision blocks for turret. A chain is provided for the winch. The 50 cal machine gun and 40 mm grenade launcher barrels look the part to my eyes. Vinyl tires are nice, but need a bit of work with a sanding stick to clean up the seam. I thought the fit was good overall, but with some challenging assemblies - especially the PE wheel well appliques, suspension assemblies and tail light assemblies. The few decals went down easily and responded well to decal solution. There are markings and painting instructions for two vehicles - one three part Euro camo and one in desert camo. Instruction were adequate along with a color, two sided painting guide and decal placement sheet. Overall, I had a fun time building and painting this unique looking vehicle and would recommend to a more advanced builder looking to add an armored wheeled vehicle to their collection.

"Not Bad"
epd365
Model has decent details to it, the fit is questionable, some sanding to get proper fit is needed.

 
"Very Detailed Kit"
jamesparis (Fort Worth, Texas)
Lots of very small delicate parts, had to replace a few pieces due to them break while trying to sand of sprue connection points. not sure following the instructions was the best way to go for the tail light/ antenna assembly, very fragile. Per the features listed on the product page mine did not have a M249 Squad Automatic Weapon mounted outside the gunner's hatch, only a pintle mount for one to be added. probably not the best kit for inexperienced modelers, but will likely buy again.

 
"Great build!!"
reetcee
This was probably the best fitting model I have ever done and I have done many. No flash sanding or filling issues whatsoever. It made a great addition to my armor collection. Highly recommended for all builders.
