I finished these a few days ago. Some of the build was a bit fiddly but once you get going they do come together easily enough. I chatted to Chris from Baxmod before I got going and as always being the fanastic guy he is, he supplied me with some resin bits to convert the rear sections of each to the SADF spec and also a complete resin replacement for the 90 turret as well as the camo netting bits.

In doing my research I came across a link from John in the post your stash thread and in this he comments on how small the kits are. I actually think he was on to an actual issue, when built up and compared to the rest of my 1/72 armour and vehicle collection they are noticeably small, they really do look more like 1/76 when compared to the Airfix landie of the same scale. In dimension terms according to a Wiki search they should have very similar dimensions to a buffel but if this is the case they are roughly 2cm too short, ironically not far off from a width point of view. Anyway that said they look nice and do add nice representations to the collection.
