Here’s one I’ve had for many years trying to break this Model building block and lack of mojo to build anything to do with Millitary Models or models in general I thought I would start fresh with this Model. No fancy trills mostly box stock and some light weathering add. 5CDE60E6-228A-4D05-8DC8-A3367C5455E4.jpeg01AAE6FF-9D2C-42EB-A9B7-E19CB15B4B4B.jpeg

Lee,
Been there in that area of picking up a box with all the good intentions in the world, and ten boxes further down the raod still nothing on the bench. Go for it, even if it gets you building it does not have to be correct.
Mike.

Interested in how this goes - thinking of getting one myself - any idea of the overall size (w & l)? Just wondering how much space it'll take up on the dio I'm starting.

Piece 'O cake Lee, it's a truck. And at that scale it should almost fall together for you......I'll be watching this if you have room and a cuppa coffee. Rick H. :thumb2:

Go on Lee, start putting solvent to the plastic....when you make a bit of progress the mojo will look after itself.

This appears to be an L 3000 A, which was 6255 × 2350 × 2600 mm IRL (per Kraftfahrzeuge und Panzer der Reichswehr, Wehrmacht und Bundeswehr by Werner Oswald, 17th edition, 2004). In 1:35 that would be 179 × 67 × 74 mm.

Hi Lee,
Hope this build can break your mojo stalemate For you !
Think most of us suffer from lack of interest at some point, I find it best to just go with it and have a break, its only a hobby after all not a career.

Thanks - makes life easier, as I'll just do a 'footprint' of 180x68 to see whether to have one or a 'maultier' :thumb2:
