Mike, Photobucket is no longer your friend, I'm afraid....



What the Hey, Hey???!! I'll look into it.

Mike

EDIT: Looked into it. Photobucket wants $40 a month for 3rd Party Hosting. Well, they can Kilo Mike Alpha....Guess I'll have to look else where. What BS.

Known issue. If you poke around the forums you'll see how Photof***kit's third-party posting policy has pretty much destroyed the KitMaker Network. ... Sucks!

Well, guess there won't be any more build update photos from me until I can find something else that allows 3rd party hosting. I am deleting my Photobucket account (all my albums first). No sweat to me as I have everything backed up at home.

Kitmaker doesn't offer enough storage space to do regular postings with pictures, so....I'll at least post a finished picture or two.

What BS.

Imgur seems to be working for me.

A few more part added.



Upper "shell" resting on the base. Making sure the four tires are all touching the ground. Pretty amazed that I need NO adjustments for them to sit correctly.



Door panels and seats are now primed.

The Eduard PE set is a must for the CMK VW's.

And we're done....



Not by a long shot. For such a small vehicle a Jeep has a lot of decals. Next up: sealing, weathering/decals and more sealing.

Geez Mike, I can't imagine the PE for that thing. Must be microscopic. You have far greater patience than myself. Quite a switch from the Ratte right?

And some color!



A lot of the PE is quite small, but nice looking. I'm thinking I could fit about a hundred fifty of these in the Ratte.

I'm building the Italeri 1/72 fast assembly jeep kit. I'm gonna add some snow chains from an old O3D miniatures PE set. I've also got some 3d printed radio, ammo box, antenna and stretchers. So it might either end up as a radio jeep or ambulance jeep.

Some really nice work going on here guys. Great variety.

Dan, that stretcher Jeep is great. Wouldn't want to brake too hard or the patient on the left front stretcher might end up in his lap!

Maybe if I finish the other builds I am in, I can join in here... it looks like everyone is having fun

You are not on your own there Clayton!!! That is why I own a jewellers magnification lamp. Even PE in 1/48th scale is a challenge for some of us

I have less patience, that's why I build small
