Very nice work on the detailing. Are those PE straps around the stowage bundles? The swollen, tightly wrapped effect is quite effective. And, why no fenders? Was that an artistic decision or a historic one?

Ron, yet again you have amazed me with the finish you have achieved. The depth and realism you achieve with your finishes is second to none, in my humble opinion mate. I scratched some snow chains for the Tamiya kit a while back, and I also was happy with how they turned out. Fiddly and time consuming, but quite rewarding!
Great stuff

Well after several months away from the hobby i come back to find this one published, thanks Henk that was nice timing and i appreciate your time putting it together

Hi Ed thanks for the comments, the fenders were left off just because i didnt want to cover up the snow chains heh but i remember seeing pics of these vehicles with them missing so its not totally artistic but definatly wasnt based on an actual vehicle.

Hi Brad, thanks man i always appreciate your comments on my allied builds i know ive done ok if i get your thumbs up, i agree about the snow chains i think they really set this particular vehicle off perfectly.
