Hi guys,

I am calling this finished at last,started last September and has been on and off since then!

For you that haven’t followed on WIP you can have a look here.

It has been a bit of a grind and it put up a good fight in places. I don’t think I will be doing another one soon 😀

Hi Ivan, turned out really well, especially considering what a tricky kit it was. Weathering looks just right too.

Don't fancy the drivers chances once out of the cab!

Thanks Darryl, Although I am pleased the way it turned out I certainly won’t be going there again!

The drivers feet had to come off as they wouldn’t fit under the heater. 😀

You can't tell that the kit gave you any grief Ivan,

You nailed this one fella  :thumbsup:

Appearances can be deceptive as they say😀

Thanks  to everyone for their comments and likes👍
I can say without your support this kit would NOT have been finished.

 

Thank you 

Ivan

I have ALWAYS liked these, ever since my mom got me a Matchbox BP version way back at the Offutt AFB exchange in ‘66.  
 

You did fantastic work and the weathering (plus outdoor shots) are spot on.  I’d love to take a crack at one in 1/35, but the thought of messing up an expensive resin kit terrifies me.  😀

 

Cannot understand why no one has issued an injection version.

 

Oh well, now you have a rare masterpiece to be extremely proud of.

Thanks if you would like to look at the WIP it will give you an insight of what this kit is all about.

It isn’t one for the faint hearted and drove me to near madness at times but as you say now it is done it is something to say YES  I done it😀

Proper Minging, just like every one I pulled up alongside during countless tactical "Replens" on Soltau and across Germany in the 80`s, Excellent! You just need the SQMS`s "choggy wagon" parked at the end of the line now! Oh an Wolfgang's blue Merc to get the heads up on where you were going the next day!
