On one of my Google search outings, I stumbled upon the image below, and decided to go with something close to that driver position — still need to move the left arm down just a bit.

Figure is from the MiniArt 'US Jeep Crew and MP' set with replacement Hornet head and hands.


Trivia question , can you identify the passengers...
Cheers!🍺

For some reason your tagged pics didn't show up in your post Ken. These are Mike's pics you referred to

Nice work, Peter!
I also like the shine of brass Pimped up the Tamiya engine set a little just to achieve a look that is even closer to the real engine bay. Some brass parts (on the side wall) are from the Aber set but all the wires came from my stash. Some more things (tool box, etc) to complete the engine compartment and then moving on with the Kübelwagen itself
cheers,
Zsolt

Okay, where I am up to:
Shortened the Voyager braces on the inside hull walls to fit them where they should be. This way everything else starts to fit correctly like the bilge pipe also scratch built from styrene.

Added actuator arm for vent and handles using wire. Added frame and Magic Sculpt seats to rear. Tamiya gives you a very wide ironing board for this and it does not fit with the Voyager etch added anyway! My research indicates the seats were 3 separate pieces also used as life preservers in an emergency.

Also scratch built all the gear levers using brass rod. Tamiya does the paired ones with D shaped profile shafts (Flat on one side) instead of the correct round shape. Leather boots again from Magic Sculpt.



Also done some work on the fore deck. Added the missing stiffening to the hatch cover from stretched sprue. This is a pressed steel piece in the original and the criss cross keeps the hatch firm and flat.



Lastly, the scratch built front seats with Voyager etch mounts. The Tamiya ones look little like the real thing. Also tried the press with pen routine in the trim vane. Jury is still out on that.

What shine Mike?

Well you are closer to the finish line than me. Still working on the GPA, but not a lot worth seeing yet. Had remove some of the Voyager interior and remodify it to be accurate. Bracing struts too long, etc. Hopefully pics this weekend.

Nice to see a dio theme Linus. Are you doing the mechanic as well, or just the engine?

Hello guys,
@Mike: lovely Beetle! Grats!
@Linus: You will like this kit. Perfect fit and nice details. I'm just looking around in local hobby shops to get that engine set. Do you have any idea what camo scheme to apply?
cheers,
Zsolt

Almost done. Decals went on just a bit ago. Shine is Future which will get dulled up with a flat coat. After that, it's just a matter of dusting 'er up.

Cheating by posting a picture of another new jeep kit isn't really my thing



There are NO degrees of honesty

Besides, my Dutch grandmother would roll in her grave and come haunt me if I didn't let you in anyway.

Welcome aboard... or is that Welkom?

I sure hope Christian is okay.

Goof, I kinda' like your concept, and since the Jeep retains its center stage status, I'm good with it.

Thanks Peter. I haven't seen Chuckles around either so i thought i'd post the question to see how the response would be. Not making the starting pictures was an honest mistake. Cheating by posting a picture of another new jeep kit isn't really my thing

Hi Goof

That is usually the call for the build Moderator and usually they call for a pre-start pic to be eligible. However, Christian (Knuckles) has not posted here on Armorama since July, before the build started. I have sent him a private email to see if he is okay, but have had no response. I hope he is well.

Anyway, failing a Moderator, I suggest that we put this up for a vote of all those enrolled here in the build and who are following it. My vote is yes, as I believe one purpose of a group build is to encourage people to build and finish the kit and I also notice you have completed two other GB's in the past.

How does everyone else feel?

Hmm... i have a slight problem. Well, several slight problems really, but i won't bother you guys with the rest of them

This problem concerns a jeep. This is what i have:




The problem is this: i enlisted in the campaign intending to build a jeep as cargo for a 2 1/2 ton GMC. Last Saturday i took the box with me to the monthly modelling club and at the end of the afternoon there was something resembling a jeep. The Tamiya kit builds well and practically falls together. I was pretty pleased with myself when i got home. Then i thought about posting the photo's and the problem became evident: i FORGOT to take the starting pictures of the unbuild kit.

This is what i intend to do with it:


The Tamiya GMC builds equally well. It was build a while ago. After considering several options for the cargo i got back to the Jeep. I remember a long time ago when i just got back into modelling i saw a few photo's of a Jeep in the back of a GMC. That's the very reason i bought the GMC in the first place This campaign provided a nice opportunity to build the Jeep.


So the question is: can i still go on with this jeep for this campaign?

Hello fellow modelers,
I'd like to enlist to this campaign with Tamiya's Kübelwagen (1/35). Some upgrade from Aber is planned to be added but not too much of it. And depending on my mood (and the time remaining before the end of the campaign) I'll use BlackDog resin stowage. Or not Or maybe.
Cheers,
Zsolt
