Hi All,

Shell, Colin - great finishing on your kits!

Update #3 - Finish

I've also managed to push the Chi-Ha to finish line.
Generally lots have happened and lots stuff used, stuff I remember:
1) Tamiya panel liner black & brown
2) Buff oil from 502 abteilung & yellow ochre from some Polish vendor;
3) Pigments from Mirage Hobby, MiG & Vallejo
4) Engine oil streaks from MiG and some rust streaks from Vallejo...
And some more.

So the kit now looks like that:









Thank you, it was fun to watch your builds and wish you all , who haven't yet reached "finish" to complete

Cheers,
Radek

Shell,

The base kubelwagen kit is excellent and the radio equipment (supplied as pastic) is quite nice. The PE radio compartment is a pretty good representation of the real thing. That said, I could not get it to fit correctly. I am considering trying to rebuild it using plastic card.

Hello everyone,
I finished my kit. Dragon moulded it from 90s of previous century, so it's terrible in assembly. I used the track chains from AFV Club and painted it in JGSDF camo with Mr Hobby paint set.



Cheers,

I built the ambulance version not long ago and liked the vehicle better than the Tamiya version, but as you probably know sometimes Dragon doesn't "measure twice-cut once" many times when they do a variant on one of their kits and the new parts don't always align quite right.

I recently bought Tamiya's Kubelwagen repair set and plain to use another Dragon Kubel to simulate an oil change/valve adjustment scene based on my years as a VW bus owner lying underneath the beast and getting oil-splattered. But I plan to build the radio version before that happens.

The WWP Wireless for Wehrmacht book is very helpful resource, with a couple good pictures of a radio equipped Kubelwagen. Especially nice since some of the part placements in the instructions are wrong. It also has you build a transmitter that would not have been used with the Kubelwagen (but a useful spare).
