AA Stalwart Mk 2

Good lord!   Did the driver really sit with his back to a Really Big Radiator?  Presumably the airflow was in through the cab and out into the load bed.  Must have been a mite chilly.  And a cab heater which pre-heats the air before entering the radiator seems counter-productive.

Two intakes at the rear of the cab sorted the air,and how Tommy kept his toes warm will be in be made clear in the next instalment 😀

Morning all,just primed the parts for in the cab as once the windows are in I don’t want the airbrush near them! So hand painting later after they are in.😀

Wheels back on,looks like there was too much heat for the glue and resin to cope with when I was moving the wheels about.

Hay ho live and learn 😀

DPM put on the driver,don’t know whether that restored my sanity or improved my mood or not! 😉

It’s amazing how that Daco solution makes them conform, it looks in the photo that they are lifting on the inside of the leg but it is a seam I missed taking off. Back to the main job soon..

Nice work so far. Glad you recovered this one. Did you add some strengthening in the axles while repairing? 

 

Daco decal solution is one of the best IMHO..

Thanks Silenoz,there was no way the kit was not being fixed to costly to bin 😀. The axles were glued back in place and will be alright with no more heat treatment.

I bought the bulk jerry can load for my Stalwart.  I was a bit disappointed with it as its not a full load, its only three quarters of a load and the top row of the load is not a full row  I had to look else where for odd jerry cans to fill out the load.  When I carried a load of POL on the Stalwart I used in the army, it was always a full load, anything less was dangerous?  If those lose cans fell over or, you had "leakers" the petrol would drip through the floor to the engine and resulted in some cases of the Stalwart catching fire, which did happen.  It was just a case of pulling the fire extinguisher handles in the cab(at the back of the drivers head-high in the cab and running).  Cost of buying individual jerry cans to fill out the load can be expensive, luckily, for me, somebody on Ebay was selling some odds and ends from building his kits over the years and some of his extras were Jerry cans, about 40 of them...…...but be aware, its a 3 part load from AA with a few loose ones...…..check out the pictures on AA where you see one seated in the back of the Stalwart

Thanks for that I’ll fill it out with oil drums or such.

Just a little progress! I was not happy with the etch cab cleats so I made my own. If they don’t look right don’t hang back tell me and I will change them. 😀
