Normandy ‘Piggy-back’ ride
This is the 1/48 Tamiya U.S. Army 2.5 ton 6×6 Cargo Truck, and the Mister Craft 1/48 Piper Cub.
The model deplicts the transportation of Piper Cubs in the days following the D-day landings as they were brought off the large landing ships.
The Tamiya 1/48 scale military vehicle kits are brilliant and I really enjoy them. The Mister Craft on the other hand was incredibly basic with an interior that isn’t even worth mentioning. However as I was putting a tarpaulin over my cockpit area it didn’t matter. I will say however that the fabric effect on the wings and body was surprisingly good.
Overall I’m happy with how this came out.
