  1. Actually picked this kit up for another GB, but decided to build something entirely different (a Valentine tank that never got finished). So hoping a small kit allows me to finish in time, though no favours for me on starting very late... Plan is for the Austro-Hungarian car captured from the Russians. Instructions call for an overall grey, but I'm not sure about that. Something is telling me to go a green or khaki color. A period photo has me thinking it retained it's Russian paint since there does not appear to be any markings of the original owner, but if anyone has an idea I would be glad to read about it: Have also picked up the associated PE set from NorthStarModels: Reviews of the kit are good, but there is a consensus of the instructions being a bit wanting when indicating exact location of parts. -------------------------------------- Construction began with test fitting of the larger parts, the body and bottom floor/frame. I found the bottom a bit warped, so glued the two immediately before adding any small detail parts. A metal clamp holds the two pieces together as it dries overnight: I then turned my focus to the turrets, finding the wall halves are incorrectly numbered which would result in having two left halves together and the same with the right halves. Easy to figure out when test fitting: When constructed, there are two noticeable gaps. The turret walls do not meet at the back, which is easily fixed with some plastic sheet. The other gap is the floor does not sit flush within the turret wall. Not that it would be noticed anyways once the model is complete, but the provided PE takes care of that. I also added a muzzle flash to one of the guns to match the period b/w photo. It looks like the left hand turret had it's Maxim gun switched out for the Austrian made Schwarzlose machine gun? regards, Jack
