VW Kübelwagen - 1/35 - Tamiya


Recommended Posts

The 1/35 Tamiya Kübelwagen is a lovely little kit - but it has taken me over 12 months to drag her over the line - due to a complete loss of mojo whilst working through the pandemic.  Anyway - she's done now - so here she is...

It was hardly a labour of love - but finally getting back to the bench to finish this has cheered me up a lot.

 

Thanks for popping in - Steve

End result was worth it Steve. It's turned out really well. Oh, and Kurt looks good too.

That's a great result Steve, the simple base really sets it off nicely. Well done buddy.

Mrs N and I had our jabs today Steve. I was a bit upset though... I didn't get a toffee.  :lol:

Well done the both of you - I've decided I'm taking my own bag of toffees - not a brilliant idea - as I'm diabetic - BUT HEY - I want a treat!!!

 

A rosette would be good - "third prize" probably in my case - imagine "best in show" - we should have rosettes on here - ooh I'm going for a lie down - I feel a bit "giddy" :blush:

Hi Steve, nice Kubel! I love the figure! Why did you use the 1SSPD symbol with a WH vehicle? Do you have some pictures about it? 😉

Filippo - it's simple really...  The 1SSPD stole it & rebadged it during some fighting near Cheux ;)  Those SS boys were thieving little beggars.  You'll also notice they lost the front bumper & replaced it with an "Anti Suicide Badger" deflector (see the WIP for more info) :lol:

 

Ciao - Steve

Great job with this Steve - you must be pleased to get it finished and on the display shelf.

 

All the best
