I remember I painted a black colour primer, added sand colour and some final washes....

Anyway, I have been searching the "under construction thread", I write the link if you are interested ;)

The promised photo Patrick ;)

The other day I found a very useful item....Ikea always help you!

All you use Inches, and here we use Cm!!! Now the problem is solved, when I see you talking about “this kit is 4 inches long...” O_o now I have the tool to measure it :P

Ok!! The Jeep is 21 inches long ;)
