Thanks Alan for the kind words.
The doors can be opened but it requires quite a bit of surgery on the inside of the doors where the bulge at the bottom is. And you have to scratchbuilt the hingesystems.
But otherwise it is a decent kit that can be made into something cool. It's currently standing among it's other 1:35 Automotive Brethren.

Hi Robert,

Another great article and build. Pity about the bonnet. Do the doors open (missed that)!

Funky and interesting camo scheme, nice work on the painting and finish..

Excellent addition to your vehicle collection..

Cheers

Ola Christophe.

Thanks for your reply and the kind words. I'm glad you found it useful and I'm looking forward to your efforts once you start this nice kit. Even with its shortcomings you can make something really nice out of it.

Robert Blokker shows us what is possible when building one of the many cars that have been released by ICM; this time around it is the Opel Kapitan that gets tackled.
