The machine was built from the 1:48 Hasegawa kit, the white crosses, as well as the boundary lines are taped off and sprayed.
The German Kubelwagen comes from Tamiya, the characters are from ICM.
Here's my small dio/vignette featuring Tamiya's JSU-152. It's intended to depict the Soviets advancing through Berlin in early April 1945, right before the end of the war.
The JSU-152 was built OOB. It's a wonderful kit that goes together very [...]
Here's my Tamiya M51 Super Sherman. The kit was built OOB (out-of-box) with no extras added.

Having double ordered Airfix's new 1/48 scale Spitfire XII & Seafire XVII & completed one of each with a great deal of satisfaction, I wondered what to do with the second pair of kits that would be more interesting than doing the same a[...]
