More steps, the kit is excelent, If you like to do it with the doors open, the inside is good, and the motor too, good details.
More pictures of the advance of the model:

Excellent work. I like how you have just the right amount of chipping to look like a vehicle that is used, but not abused.

Very good model. A neat and correct construction. It is good to see these models a little "rare". With regard to the colors, there is an old discussion whether these vehicles had 2 or 3 colors. The three colors would be brown, green and sand:

Thank you so much for showing your model. Greetings.

Well done, looks like both kit mfg. and builder did a good job. It's also a real breath of fresh air from the endless parade of King Tigers.

I have the same doubts with the colours, the differents contrast in the pictures, show us razonables doubts, but the books of the milititary army of Argentian like of Ricardo Sigal Fogliani confirm that had only two colours. A mistery...

The version in black and white:


The model in its base:

It's true what Sigal Fogliani's book says (by the way, very good book). That's why, when I built mine, for the avoidance of doubt, I went for sure: I painted it green:

Greetings, and see you next time.

I used your model like one reference to make mine, thanks by share. I guess they are the only Armoured Car Vickers Crossley made for the Argentinian Army. I didn`t it in green because you had made that version.
