The RG-31 is a 4×4 multi-purpose mine-resistant ambush protected infantry mobility vehicle manufactured in South Africa by Land Systems OMC, a division of BAE Systems. The RG-31 is built from a V-shaped all-steel welded armor monocoque hull and high suspension, providing excellent small-arms and mine blast protection. The RG-31 is classified by the United States Department of Defense as a category 1 Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle. The vehicle accommodates a crew of 8 or 10, including the driver, depending on model. Dismounting is provided via a large rear door and two front doors.
provides this very nice resin set to add some details to the Kinetic RG-31 MRAP kit. The first thing that caught my eye on this set is how detail it incorporates into the vehicle’s interior. This small set adds a great deal of details. There are 27 resin parts, 13 PE pieces, a section of thick clear plastic, and a roll of wire in this set.
The parts include:
- 6 rear seats with very nicely molded cushions and seat belts in 3 different configurations
- 2 frpont seats with nice cushion details and differently molded seat belts
- 2 SINCGARS radio in a mount with with two handmikes, two antenna mounts, two speakers, 3 J-boxes, ICS box , and PE antenna mounts
- 1 center console for between the front seats
- 2 PE gun shields (1 extra)
- 1 PE gunners platform
- 1 fire extinguisher in a mount
- 1 resin FBCB2 computer screen
- PE and resin .50 cal w/ammo can and mount
The myriad of parts are all crisply molded without any bubbles or air holes evident. The casting is top-notch, which is standard with Legends Productions
sets. This set gives you all the extra detail parts to really bring your RG-31 to life. The duplicate parts are also nice in case the builder breaks a few or sacrifices them to the carpet monster along the way. The set is very complete and well detailed, adding parts that are either missing from the Kinetic kit or are below par for details. The instructions are also very clear and come on a two-sided, glossy, full color page that easily shows how to assemble the clearly labeled parts.
This is a great set that will accent your RG-31 well. It has everything you need to add to the vehicle. Legends Productions
has another winner in this set. It is perfect for any RG-31 MRAP from Iraq or Afghanistan.
