Hi Everyone

Scottie - Great to have you along for the ride. I will be looking to have a look like your Sd.kfz.222 on this one
Si - Your Opel blog was great so looking forward to your help on this build
MikeC - Looking forward to doing as much scratchery as I can on the hole build
Lee - Thanks for the picture and great to have you along for the ride
MrT - I certainly need your help with the detailing and scratchery on the Flak
Marty - It will be the Tamiya one. Full of mistakes but a good base to work from
Jim - I am with you on the jerry cans. I may put them on the other side as there is a lovely PE box that can go there

Stunning mate only one thing , could you put the coin the right way round
Seriously your build skills have developed to such a high standard and the photo posting on here is far better than MM .
Glad you have been been able to move things , I've had word from Paul Richardson that he's down low all my ablums
And burnt them on to CD and will post on Monday . Top man indeed

Morning Cpl Jones .
Yes have to agree with Si that foil is perfection. As for those buckels and straps !!!
Nice to see near Hospital corners using that tape. Is it the stuff you use for first aid ?

I'm becoming more convinced that you are related to Mr T

Hi Steve,
Thank you for the micropore tape idea it;s brilliant, and that roof is looking the dog's, one thing you have in common with Mr Day you never disappoint.

You foiled them all with the foil work Steve...very nice indeed.:thumb2:
I had my raybans on for the cab PE installations...never seen any other Opel Blitz the same as this.

Carry on Cpl Steve.

Cheers,
Richard

Hi Everyone
Lee - Glad you made it mate. Pull up a chair and have some cocoa
Si - Inspired by Andrew Belsey's hospital tent at the beginning of the year
RSM Race - :smiling3: It's surgical tape that I wrap it around minor cuts. Better than plasters
Jim - We have Jimbo to thank for that tip. He showed me that one about a year ago
Fernando - I appreciate the support mate:thumb2:
Ron - It's very easy to use. I hope it goes well for you
Ian -Great to have you along for the ride. I always welcome help and advice on my builds so if you think I am going down the wrong road feel free to say:thumb2:
Richard - I hope it will be different from others I have seen. Great to have your company
