Hi all
This is the Tamiya kit with some additions from their accessory set and lots of goodies from the spares box.
The Pictures came out a bit on the dark side, but I hope you'll like them anyway
Please do comment
Jacob

Definitely a great job! Fuel spill on the tank, dirt on the windscreen, and also the overall weathering are really impressing my eyes. Anyway, no gun mounted on the truck? And yes... can't wait for your another masterpiece. Thanks for sharing


Cheers,


Garry

Like the overall weathering, just the right amount, not overdone. Good looking truck.

Another winner, Jacob. What about the tires? Resin or horrible Tamiya rubber/vinyl?

Thanks for your nice comments.
Bill: None of the above 😊
Tamiya actually provide the wheels in molded styrene, which in my humble opinion are very nice and usable.

Jacob, is the base kit 35218? And why that kit and not the AFV Club one (M35A2).

Bill: Yes, that's the one. I chose that one simply because I've seen the kit first hand, and found it looking great. I'm sure the AFV club offering is excellent, so it's not like I have anything against them at all. Well, maybe just the fitting issues I had with a couple of their 251's
