It seems like there has been a HUGE influx of features lately - which is AWSOME.

Here I'd like to point you in the direction of a Build Review by Eric Sikkema aka demodelbouwer. This one started on the Netherland site and has been translated for the English side.

Take a look

i'm not placing this reply to brag but will ya please give me some comment on this model.
It was the first US model i've build in years ( i normally build German subjects )
After this model i've build the DUKW and you all gave me some good information and tips.
Perhaps i have to alter here and there some little things on this tiny vehicle .


Also i wish everyone a very happy new year .

All the best

A great and very useful article Eric. Good description of tools used, paints used, and accessories. Would have improved the article even more if you had of given a short explanation of how you made your bedrolls and vignette base. Tips like this are invaluable, no matter how many times you read them.

I love how you dressed up this little beauty. I have seen it countless times in my local hobby shop and when I looked for it along with the DUKW, it was gone. I´ll get it someday. I love reading articles like this and would love to see more! The whole scene is very nice and especially the wild plants at the side of the road.
I have only one nit-pick on the whole scene. That is the gaps between your road pavings. They all seem quite deep .... the depth of the paving. These would fill up through time with grit etc, even if they were not filled with sand at the time of laying.
Great work and will go well with all your german dios.
