Hi all,

Nice work!

I particularly like the groundwork and the use of size of the base. What's also a bit of fresh-air is the very subdued/minimalist weathering.

Thanks for sharing it...

Not only is that some very nice work, but it's a good looking truck too.


Thanks for sharing!

Very nice work, I really like the LRDG vehicles specially the Canadian Military Pattern.

Yep, gotta agree there Jim. Excellent use of restraint, thereby, creating more impact.

Excellent presentation.

Very nice work on the truck and base, but I have one quibble.The LRDG never towed the 20 mm Breda; it was always mounted in the back of the truck.
Cheers,

Dick
