Lord Air

Nice touch with the door opening on the driver's side. Who makes the kit, and how was the build? Any tips?

From these two pics it looks solid.

Tell us what your plans are. Thanks.

looks very nice. I like the details, such as the canteens on the seats. I noticed the windshield looks froster or fogged. Was that intentional weathering? Are you planning on doing any more weathering It would sure add to an already great model

not bad Dave. My only comment is the color of the vehicle seems to be to brown rather than the yellow used and you are right the Tamiya Kubel is a good kit.

Looks good! My comment was going to be about the color also, however I realize that digi cams have a tendency to distort the color (best to take pics by a window or outside, natural light) Reminds me that I have one of these in 1/16 scale lying around somewhere....I need to start finishing some models..I have too much going at once. Ah but therein lies the joy of modeling.
