    Post  Dottore on Sun Feb 24, 2013 6:55 pm

    This is Tamiyas LRDG Chevy with Breda...

    Will be using a resicat resin update which includes wheels and an Eduard PE set...

    Chassis went together well...The wheels and front bumper were obious improvements thanks to the resin and PE...





    The Tamiya bumper and vinyl wheels that were replaced...




    Next up the cabin and truck bed.

    Nice one!

    I had nearly started to build this last year and it's still on my mind!!!

    Look forward to see what you're going to do with this one.

    Some more kit parts which have been replaced by better detailed items...

    Post  Dottore on Thu Mar 07, 2013 1:44 pm

    There's a missing rivet on the truck bed bulk head ftting I will be adding shortly...

    Unfortunately the lovely Armorscale cans dont fit the Eduard etched holders as it seems Eduard based the holders on the Tamiya plastic parts so I guess I have to scratch sme plastic ones or bite te bullet and build some etched holders from scratch...

    Detailed truck bed and cab up shortly...

    The Breda 20mm cannon will be placed in the rear bed...
    Still undecided whether to keep the rear bed door down or up...
    Spare tire is blu tacked on only for now...
