    LRDG Chevrolet 30CWT with Breda Empty Some more kit parts which have been replaced by better detailed items...

    Post  Dottore 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...
