I like that a lot, is it all from the kit or have you added extras?

Itís the Tamiya recce kit, they do three versions,
The driver and radio operator comes with the kit, commander comes from some Bronco figures, kit at rear comes from Blackdog.
I cheated with the building itís a mini-art vacform kit buil t for something else in the pipeline.

Hi Bob,
Built an early version of this a few years back, but mine wasn't a patch on this.
Great work, nicely portrayed, and looking 'real' with added stowage, etc.
Like the back drop from Mini-art.
Don't consider that a short cut, they are models in themselves, and need good painting skills.
Nice Job.

Hi Bob, that's ace!  I love the kit in and on it.  The amount and placement is just right which is something I struggle with.  I suffer from what I call "pizza topping syndrome".  You know when you see these people at the restaurants just casually throw the peppers and salami on it works for them, but when I try, it  looks either deliberately placed or a complete mess.  I just can't get the balance right but you have it nailed.  Can I have mine with extra pepperoni please?
