    I was following Mauther's kubel workshop but I did not get to see his finished project. I decided to finish my kubel my way. I never got around to fixing the fenders and kept them squared instead of rounded. The MG-42 I carved it out of laminated card stock and found a belt feed and reduced it to size. Overall I am rather pleased but it could have been better. The same for the MG mount. I did a google search for the MG-42 and got some good schematics. The jerry cans are a free download but I forgot from where. Enjoy the model and good look to the next to endeavor this project. The figure is a WWE wrestler from my grandkid's toy box

    Thank you, but the credit goes to Mauther for his build up project. Before someone mentions it, the jerry cans are positioned everywhere. I figured that the Germans were as inventive as the Yanks and probably copied our Desert Rat Willys. You have got to have imagination. That is the sport of this hobby.
