Dear fellow Britmodellers,

here's my 1/72 Dan Taylor Modelworks Humber Mk.II Scout Car.

I built from the box, adding resin figure from Attack, scratch-built side mirrors and antennas from Albion Alloys steel wire.

On first impression, the Dan Taylor kit looks like an Eastern European short run product.

When I started construction, I was surprised about the ease of assembly and good fit of parts!

 

I painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, weathering was done with artist oils and pastel chalks.

Decals are out of the box (#M-72502) and were applied according to instructions, representing a vehicle of 59th Heavy Regiment, Royal Artillery, 2nd Army, 1945.

Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel.

Excellent work on a microscopic level 😳

 

Did you forget to paint the aerials? 😉

Thank you for feedback Andrew.

The antennas are steel wire and unpainted (according to photographs of the real vehicle) - should they have another color?

Antenna are usually black but if the real thing is steel then steel it is 😊👍

I guess I was mislead by my "source"  ... I will keep your advice in mind for future builds!

Nice one Roman! I would just suggest to add a bit of stowage for good measure 🙂
