Hot & Cold dual build

Postby vw8243 » Mon May 19, 2014 1:27 am

Hi Lads.

Just starting this as ive got my camels from paul sat at the imss show , im doing this build for my self as ive not done a desert dio in about 25 years and a snowy dio in a few years .
So its going to be a kubel with crew in the desert maybe chatting with the arab ?.
The aerosan in snow with some guys clad in some very warm clothes ,
We will see how it goes ;)

First i thought you are going to do them on the same dio! Then I was like "yeah... russians are crazy enough to loose snowmobile on the desert" :D

I'll be watching as I'm tempted by this Aerosan myself.

Very unusual dual build Leo. Looking forward to seeing how you do the snow dio as it's something I'd like to try at some point. I have a few ideas in my head involving planes with skis :oj

Hi Lads

thanks for looking in the aerosan is about done not a bad kit at all ,just double check before glueing .
Got to paint in side before glueing together.
Tami kubel :D
Figs still not sorted ?
Vinny still not sure wat im using for snow myself yet as there is a whole load a crap out there to use now , in our day it was pollyfiller and baking soda 8oS might be using that yet. :) .

AAAA wat can i say the aerosan a lovely kit at the end a the day ,bit a paint on the inside they were made a plywood so used a bit of oil paint to give that wood look , wont really be seen so dont matter .
The fit of the kit seems great , but again check before glueing, the roof went on no prob .

The Kubal been a Tami kit just fell together , been painted German grey as a base coat also has had a few coats a HS. so once painted a yellow some grey may show through :?:
Haven seen the grey on a kit ( first in a long ,long time ) i think i must build somit in grey , Krupp protze ,by Tami seems in order ,.

Just a little heads up , some etch frets left over so filed off any little stubs left on lengths ,i then cut these to make some jerry can holders for Kubel.
