Hi All,

Here are some shots of my Jeep painted. Some of the photos are a little soft. All comments welcome.

Never much around draft animals, but one donkey, one man? That's a lot of jerry cans, packs, machine guns, spare tires, etc., not to mention the jeep for those two to move up that slope. Love the concept and execution, just question the physics. Any donkey wranglers out there to opine?

I wonder if the grey is a bit pale...?
Also, should this light grey version not have the cross marking on the back ?

The seat canvas should partially wrap around the tubular frame.

Otherwise, cool and inspired idea... Obviously, the men are optimists !

Cheers
Andrew

...Thanks! I'll have to check my donkey walkaround for more color reference. I grew up in the middle of Manhattan, NYC, what do I know!

looking at our donkeys they tend to be a bit darker ;P



it would be a bit tough for a donkey to pull a jeep like that up a hill, but it didnt bother me at all at first glance.

Donkeys come in many colours from black to very pale grey, sometimes even with a pinkish shade.
You should ad a cross over the back. Here are some pictures, Thursday I can make a Donkey Walk Around



Cheerio, Arno

Hi
Donkey colours vary ... ! I just Googled until I found the right animal for the location - and had a Historex one spare, so had to match that!

One of the best SAS Jeeps Ive seen and the figures are really good as well.
Its a really inspiring build and its alsio nice to see one were the crew doesent look like the stereotopical SAS soldiers in beard and Shemagh!
I have one small remark though, if possible try to swap the Lee Enfield No 4 Mark I for a Lee Enfield No I Mark III.
The No 4 Mk I wasent in service in NA afaik.
