I see welds on this photos. So I have decided to make them. It was a difficult decision because it is quite hard to do welds in a such places. On a hull I make some grooves for putty.





I've decided to glue some plastic below and cut off a little stripes of plastic which would be filled by putty later.

Nice display! What colour should the ARW be standard panzer grey?



I know that German AFV in 20-30 years of XX century were painted in RAL 6006 Feldgrau.

Excellent project - what's happening to your other armoured car?


Hello,Tim! It is ok. I have lack of time for taking photos and no time for painting at all. Now it's waiting for final pre-paint photoset.

Greetings! I am a lucky man. Now I have one copy of Leadwarrior's limited edition of full resin kit. This is Mannschaftstransportwagen Magirus ARW . Very rare and beautiful armored car. I will try to make some corrections with welds and extra details on a hull. I hope it will be interesting.
