This is my latest completed model. It's the Tamiya kit from a couple of years ago with Husser wheels,scratch built rear extra wood top and spare tire carrier. The figures are from New World Miniatures. Thanks for looking and all comments are welcome.

One of the better LRDG models I've seen, Beatiful work with an almost OOB kit, very impressive

Hi
Love the colours and subtle wear 'n tear. The back fig looks a bit odd - is he in place? To me, looks like he's hopping. Can he hold onto something?

Watch the plastic seam on the sand channel at rear. Can you make that look a bit thinner too, or worn?

Cool job all round.

I might be inspired now - never had one but that extra gun gives more interest. I see Resicast are also doing new tyres for this.

Cheers

Howdy Jim, nice look to the finished product. The side boards turned out great. I think the wheel hubs need a hint of grease/dirt to get that lived in look. Nice restrained weathering and the sign post sets the scene.
Outta here, Mike sends . . .

Mike,
Thanks for looking and some leaky seals can't hurt. Now time to crack the box on the LAV. Hello 21st century.

Andrew,
Thanks for looking. When I built this one it was supposed to be one of those quickie builds basically OOB. I did have one piece of PSP left over from Accurate Armour that I could switch out. Those new Resicast pieces do look nice especially the wheels. That would be my choice of wheels if I were to do it again.

It was a fun project. I built it about a year ago and finally got around to painting it.
Thanks for taking the time to check it out.

Very nice! The only think I might add is alternating red and white on the ends of your sand mats. I believe they doubled as air recognition signals.

I like how it's sunken into the ground, adds some weight.

Cool scene.

Rob,
Thanks for looking. It seems that some of those sand mats did have the red/white panels and some didn't, at least going by pictures on line and in the Osprey book "Long Range Desert Group Patrolman".
