Hi Lads

Thanks, got a bit bogged down on this, goes together well, bit a cleaning to do and bloody sink marks on all the timber parts.this is the truck by the way.
As for this in france the date for these were later around august so it will be in holland :?: .

Bit a useless info late in the war truck cabs were made a bit higher (the roof ) so the steel helmet could be worn by the occupants. 'o| .

The cut out in the roof is for an observer against air attack,
The trailer is a cracking little kit in its self ,it can be built either opened or closed,i have put some stowage on top o mine as it gives it that busy look.

Peter , the truck will brob be three color might leave the gun or trailer just dunkelgelb to break it up a bit. :oDY
Put some netting on the cab front just to try it out ive white glued it on so we will see how it goes, ive got a few bales of this ,ill bring some along the next meet .
