Catch 22

Response to Best way to display an interior of an AFV?

I like to add interiors to my tanks and do enjoy the challenge even if I'm the only one to know it's there. However I have never found a way or seen one tank with an interior that shows off the full detail added without compromising the shape of the tank or making the interior look more spacious than it is. Ie cut outs, removed turret, factory build etc. So Catch 22.

Possibly the nearest I have seen is David Parkers 1/16 Tiger 2 build. This had full interior but the turret and hull roof were detachable. But then you lose the aspect of a cramped interior.

As stated I think to achieve your goal of showing how cramped the BMP interior is you need to add some figures in situ other wise you lose the perspective. Adding figures means blocking out detail. I do remember in an old Mil Mod (Airfix) Annual from the 1970s someone built a 1/72 Tiger 1 with the full interior and crew in combat positions. He did use the cut at style to show it all off. But only cut away the left side so from the right you saw a complete Tiger. On second thoughts maybe this was the best way to do it.

So as I said catch 22

As to lighting. Search You Tube. I've recall seeing some how to videos on there for Sci Fi stuff with fibre optics.
