Hmmm,
I am normally stuck in plane stuff. But, it is a rainy weekend and the stash says there are two probable kits for this campaign. So why not start something new? So I am in!
But, which one to choose?
This one in small scale

or this one in 1/48

Well...****!
I glued two key parts totally backwards on my M3 37mm gun carriage. It's hosed.

Should I replace it with another M3A1, or attach a trailer to it loaded with stowage? Either one will cost me $15.

Hi all
I am starting these. This should test my non-existent figure painting skills to the max! I will also be adding some stowage from leftover sets.

Id, say just get some bailing wire and hook it up to the jeep that you already have. In the field modifications were not much different.

Would this Godzilla era vehicle qualify? It hasn't been released yet but it looks promising if I can get my hands on one.

Ha, ha!! Looks like a Jeep to me! My VW Type 82 has been accepted for this Campaign, I don't know why the MAT wouldn't be.

WANTED: Jeep trailer in 1/35 scale.

Since I hosed my AT gun, I'm going to throw a trailer behind it and load it with some fun stowage.

Before I commit to eBay, does anyone have a 'spare' trailer for any of their Jeeps that they won't be using? I'll PayPal you, or trade you something cool for it...

I like the fact that you're given three choices for tire/hub combos. I don't like that the tread pattern on the box is NOT one of the choices. Though the instructions don't cover it, you're also given the choice of 2x4 which is a different part - I'm building the 4x4 version and I chose the "balloon" tires.

Some assembly and PE work done.



So far, minimal flash, some sink holes, but overall quite nice. Good texture on the seats, good fit of the parts so far - I'm pleased in that respect.
