    Great work there lads.

    Here is some of my recent builds, One finished and the other just started.

    AFV Club's LeFH18M. It is done as Portuguese Howsitizer during the Colonial war. Here is the photo I based it off http://www.prof2000.pt/users/secjeste/CCac3387/Imagens/09_Artilharia_bombardeamento%20no%20Canacassala,%20durante%20uma%20opera%C3%A7%C3%A3o%20conjunta%20em%201972dotjpg"]










    Hobbyboss's M3A1 White Scout Car (Early Production)













    I think both kit are nice kits to make.
    (BTW I had to stop making the Type 89 due to the loss of a few parts, which will have to be scratchbuild)

    Default Old Willys Jeep

    came across these pics , which gave me an idea of what to do with my spare jeep left over from my Italeri LCVP





    The base , I cut off from some wood out of my firewood shed . The plastic tarp is made from tinfoil , and for the rusty flaked paint , I used the hairspray and salt technique.
    I still have a couple more things to do to it , hopefully I'll get it finished this weekend

    I've wanted to do a Katyusha for awhile now , I think Zvezda's 1943 Gaz-MM truck would look good too

    I have been working on a military design Scania R620 for some time, as my interest has always been 1/35 scale military vehicles. I decided I wanted to try and build one in 1/24 scale. I took the Italeri Scania R620 kit and made the conversion with scratch built parts.

    I must say that this particular Italeri kit is very good. The chassi of this particular model is beautiful. It looks almost like it came out of a Batman film. The constructions went well but the fittings could have been better. Regardless, the build went smoothly. Some irretations here and there but nothing too major. I had looked at some of the Dutch Scania trucks and got most of the ideas from their military Scania tractors.

    I have been inspired by the Dutch and Danish military soft-skins but have not seen any Dutch military with Topline/High Line cab versions. I have been looking for one on the net but have not come across any. So, although this particular version of my build does not represent any real version out there today(that I know of) it is purely speculative that they ever used a Topline versions. Who knows, they are probably working on one as I write this.

    Breathtakingly beautiful, stunning work on that Scania! Seeing the talented work that people show here discourages me even from trying.

    Oh, I hope that you put the MP.net page showing on that laptop screen?

    Does anyone know where I could get a Chengdu J-7E or G? Google brings up the aerobatic version but I'm not interested in that.

    Finished another one:

    Zvezda 1/35 BMP-2D (My first ever attempt at a camo paint job)





    Not quite Finished: Scud B
