I bought this kit during a recent visit to an LMS in Poole. This was a kit I built as a teenager and was very proud of my finished model. The thing I remember the most about this kit was the stack of boxes, kit bags, jerry cans and other items of clutter you get to load the vehicles with, and the crew too.

The reason I am squeezing this into my 2017 build plan is because I love the kit and it fits in my suitcase for the lengthy trip away from home I am on. I will only be able to build it as far as possible, I haven't brought any paint etc.

This is how far I got in one evening which is about as far as I can go without painting them, what do I do for the rest of the week out here?

I'm very nearly done with this little kit. I still have a little bit of touch up here and there and a coat of sealing varnish then the crew and weapons to fit. Weathering will also be done.
With a bit of luck and the time I need hopefully this will be done for an Antipodean themed club competition next month.

That's looking A1 Rick, can't wait to see the completed build ( I'll check the completed section just in case as I'm catching up after a wee forum absence).
