Hi folks,



This project includes the kit LRDG Chevrolet 30cwt Truck, Tamiya Code 35092, 1/35. This old Tamiya kit is rejected at first sight, since many modelers prefer MBT`s.


But I like the trucks and in particular this model because their lines of 1930 and their curious camouflage schemes.


The kit was detailed with Eduard PE 35251; tires 35-012 LRDG/30cwt DToys resin wheel set; and lots of plastic and resin accessories.

Photos keep me breathing. Excellent work, overall and I really like the metal bits! Why is there a swastika, in the bed?

I greatly appreciate the recognition of my efforts...Thank You very much!

By the way, the swastika is one side of a disc for aerial reconnaissance. On the other side there is the British roundel

I'm more impressed, every time I look at it! Very clever how you did the air recognition panel.

Cesar,
Muito bem feito! My only criticism would be that the Tamiya kit's gas cans are too large, although the Shell markings are perfect. The 4 Imperial gallon "flimsies"used by the LRDG were 9 x 9 inches x 15 inches high (22.9 x 22.9 x 38.1 cm). The photo below shows the various sizes used, with a German jerry can for comparison.

Other than that, you've done a terrific job.
Um abrao!
Dick

Hi Richard, you're right, all the accessories this kit are bad and out of scale.

In the case of gasoline cans, as you said "quem no tem co, caa com gato" . (I do not know the corresponding term in English for this Brazilian proverb)

But all other items out of scale were replaced.

Thank you very much!
