    Kubel Add ons

    I hope that you have received my add ons for the Kubel. such as the correct jerry cans and the MG-42 mount, and ammo feeds. Looking forward to your completed project. By the way, those fenders are awful, I am working on an idea to fix it without destroying my model.

    It finishes d' layer; ink, of clear chestnut, to give an impression of splashed tires.

    Plus some photos. It does not have necessity of words in the next steps, the images speak for itself. Thanks, Nitroxide, for the images and archives.

    Im guessing this isnt finished yet so heres a suggestion on fixing those wheel arches, what you can do is build on top of them making new wheel arches that are only a fraction bigger that will attack to the current ones with the new ones obviously being rounded, you would need to redo any extras you did on the wheel arches including painting them but it could work, also for the bundle of canvas or what ever it is on the backseats it looks like it needs a second strap in the second indentation, it just doesnt look right.

    Apart from those things it is amazing, and I look foward to seeing it finished
