    Looking good.

    It looks like you're building from scans of the original kit - it's often a good idea to clean up scans and get rid of the artifacts caused by the scanning process. This guy (How to clean up a scanned image: engravings) has a bunch of tips on how to do this with Gimp.

    Do you plan to edge colour at the end of the build?

    Regards,

    Charlie

    Wow Wow Wow, all over again!
    That's beautiful!:cool:

    Are the seats, really that bright green, in real life?

    Still, that is some really beautiful workmanship!
    When I see someone else's model and just looking at it makes me
    want to build one just like it, you know that's a darn good model!
    Way to go!:thumb:

    Nice model. Should be sitting on something 'dirtier' - the weathering looks so good it really seems out of place with the plain white background ;)

    Very nice build! Question: What are you using as filler on the axle?

    Oh My God! I don't know who can stop the rain in Hanoi. It's lasting over 12 hours and still raining. Water in everywhere, no vehicle can move, motors and autos broke down... and I haved time for repainting my jeep:D. I used olive drab, Tamiya acrylic and some accessories :D

    Fantastic build, looks like a captured French jeep from the Indo-China days, even though it has US markings.
