Comin' along nicely John. Not seen a two-tone truck before but I guess that would happen if time/resources weren't available.

Those ICM figures are really nice aren't they? I will have to get that set or a future project. I read part of a review for a Tamiya kit today and it appears that ICM made the figures that come in the Tamiya kit, not a bad endorsement eh?

It is taking shape Ron, that much so i'm going the get another Opel sometime. Right this one still needs the lights putting in and inside the canvas needs painting then it's onto them fantastic ICM figures and the dio. The base will have alot of wood for the 190 to sit on and i have a bag full of small plastic strips that need the grain putting in (what have i let mysalf in for).

:grinball2: John

The Opel looks great John-I really like the faded/dusty effect on the lower areas. Have you though of using balsa wood for the FW to sit on? Or those wooden stirrers from Starbuck et al could be used-nothing's cheaper than for free!

That's assuming neither Ron nor Scott have been anywhere near your local Starbucks of course! LOL.

PS Trust me not to notice your truck was two tone only 'cos you hadn't finished painting it! A Homer moment.

Good to see you back in the groove John. Sometimes it's good to have a break for whatever reason, otherwise it starts to get, dare I say 'Boring and all consuming' if you follow what I mean!

Ron

Me? I was travelling a bit.

Hi John

This dio looks as though it's gonna be one helluva piece of work. You also beat me to the Kubelwagen - damn! (only kiddin). The truck, figures, ...well, everything looks fantastic. Can't wait to see the dio.

Cheers P

PS. I may get the Kubelwagen anyway but promise to finish it in the 3 colour camo!!!
