2011 Christmas build !
OK you’re quite right the title is flippant, but it’s true ! – Started just before Christmas 2011 (in the full knowledge that we were going to be moving to NZ in April), and finished this afternoon… I reckon that in the Modellers Dictionary, you’ll find a photo of this wee thing alongside the entry for ‘Shelf Queen’ !!
What you see here is Tamiya’s 1997 Jeep with stowage from the stash, the figure is the first one I’ve attempted in about 25 years and isn’t too bad, but plenty of room for improvement. Eventually it’ll form part of a diorama alongside an M10 (the vehicle markings are for the 7th Armd Division, 814th Tank Destroyer Battalion).
Thoroughly enjoyed working on this wee jewel (on-and-off) over the last seven years. Wonder how long it will take me to build a ‘Kubie’ if I start on it next month ? – Please feel free to pass any comment, ask any questions or make any criticism.
Have a great weekend everyone.
