SAS Jeep (Tamiya 1:35)

Hi All,

 

I have this in my stash (well, small pile of kits) and was going to build this before I started my Chinook (now complete). I've decided now would be a good time before I commence any GB's next year.

 

I've seen a few fantastic builds in the RFI's (no pressure!!) but not in WIP (though could be wrong)

I'm trying Flickr for the first time (instead of PhotoBucket) and it's a bit of a phaff to post pictures!! Any tips on making things easier?

Good start there and having started exactly the same kit yesterday I'm at about the same position.

 

What are the extra details you have?  I'm looking to get a much better pair of Vickers guns than the kit offering, any ideas?

 

Cheers

Although this kit is pretty much in the 'vintage' category, it certainly rewards a little investment of care and few extra details. I will be following with interest.

 

Cheers

Back in the 1960s my friend Roger scratchbuilt an SAS jeep and the two crew I can't even remember what chassis it was. Anyway, excuse the scratchy image as the photo is so old. All credit to Roger Whittle.

Hi Doc, I only have the additional resin parts that you see in the opening post. This is a 'fun' build for me so I'm not going to be looking at too much 'detail' :whistle:

Hi Bangor, Thanks for tagging along. This is planned as a quick build but I hope she comes out OK nonetheless. :)

Hi Arni,

 

That looks great! I like the chipping on the guns (might have to borrow that :whistle: )

 

Cheers

A little more progress over the last couple of days. First coat on the jeep and some primer on the resin

So I'm about to apply some more paint and I'm thinking there's something not quite right about the cans. Then it hits me - the handles are missing!! I wondered what these were  :whistle:

Quick update

 

A long way to go considering it's such a small model but she's starting to take shape

More stowage to add and additional weathering to complete but she's almost over the finish line :)

OK - So this is as far as I'm taking her. Planned as a quick and fun build, both boxes were ticked :)

Hi Roger - thanks for the kind words :) I realised when adding it to the RFI that it's in the wrong WIP section (it's not so shiny as it's neighbours)!
